CTE Funding

Gov. Beshear awarded $3,983,600 to Henderson County Schools to improve the CTE unit at Henderson County High School. Students at the CTE unit engage in hands-on training to learn skills related to welding, childhood education, agriculture, and more. The funding will go toward creating a new administrative suite, renovating the restrooms, creating a new culinary arts area, renovating the greenhouse, and replacing the HVAC system, among other general improvements. The funding comes from Gov. Beshear’s Better Kentucky Plan, which was appropriated funding by the General Assembly.

“The Henderson County High School CTE unit is the largest career and technical program in the state of Kentucky under one roof,” said Dr. Bob Lawson, superintendent of Henderson County Schools. “We are grateful for this grant opportunity and thankful to everyone who helped make this possible. We look forward to strengthening our partnerships with local businesses and industries while proudly watching our community thrive and grow. Through this grant, we will continue to expand student enrollment in the CTE program and successfully prepare our students for the workforce or college while becoming a national innovative leader in education."
