Students and teachers from all seven Tempe Union High School District schools were honored during the annual Career and Technical Education awards night, including McClintock students and faculty.

Over a dozen McClintock students were recognized for completing their CTE program area, shaking hands with district office officials, McClintock principal Mayra Arroyo and Career and Technical Education Director Stephanie Frimer. Students must pass 2 years of the same field in order to be considered a program completer.

CTE program areas at McClintock include Digital Communication, Digital Photography, Culinary Arts, Engineering, Auto, Film & TV, Early Childhood Education, Marketing and Business and Sports Management.

Kendra Parker, a senior at McClintock High School, was named the CTE Student of the Year for the school. She successfully completed the Early Childhood Education program.

The 2019 Program of the Year was Film & TV Production, led by Academic Coach Karen Crane. The program reached new heights when students from across the district competed in a district-wide film festival. Crane was also given a $1,000 bonus to help supplement her classroom.
