Meet Sherry Adrian
CTE is facing unprecedented cuts in funding at the very time when we can
least afford it. As a consequence of the recent economic downturn, more
and more people are looking for a way to increase their potential for
employment. CTE is a desirable solution because our training meets a
wide range of needs. We offer dynamic programs designed to prepare high
school students for entry into college or the workforce, to further
develop the capabilities of recent college graduates and to enhance the
skill set of seasoned professionals.
