Check out some photos of our students participating in the Career and Technical Education Summer Camp!Current Events & Accolades:Lee County Schools middle schoolers had the opportunity to participate in the Career and Technical Education Summer Camp. With the help of the Lee County High Academy of Engineering, Finance and Hospitality and Tourism students and staff, rising sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders were exposed to a variety of topics and activities. Students learned about business/entrepreneurship, robotics, mobile application development, video production, advanced manufacturing and transportation technology. At the end of the week, students competed in the STEM Camp Olympics, where they had to construct a tinfoil boat to hold as many golf balls as possible, a cage to protect a raw egg dropped from nine feet in the air with drinking straws, a balloon car and more. Who says you can't continue learning, while having fun, during summer?! See the above photo gallery for more!

All of our students represented LCHS admirably and I am very proud of all of them. Harris Lanier did an awesome job presiding over the conference as the 2017 State President. I am also very proud to announce that we have another state officer for the upcoming year with Brandon Pedraza-Ramirez being elected to serve for the 2017-2018 school year. We had nine students place high enough to make the stage and receive an award/medal with accolades listed below. Five of them placed first in a national level contest and earned a chance to represent North Carolina and compete at the SkillsUSA National Conference in Louisville, KY in June. Brandon will also attend this event and participate in a intensive leadership training in preparation for his role as an officer. Please congratulate these students on their accomplishments if you see them. The chapter also won two state level awards being recognized along side of five other chapters state wide as a Quality Chapter for the second year in a row and also for being in the top 10% state wide for membership size. These awards demonstrate the hard work and dedication of our student leaders and advisers to improve and expand our chapter into one of the best chapters in the state.Accolades:Greeley Hibbard & Kamryn Bivens (1st Place Mobile Robotics) nationalsJairo Diaz & Zachary Loso (2nd Place Mobile Robotics)Harris Lanier, Marissa Thomas, and Claire Quiggle (1st Place Chapter Display) nationalsJayden Covington (1st Place Creed)Edgar Gonzales (2nd Place Creed)
