2020 Fall Photo Gallery
Tanya Topazio

Each fall, the photography students curate a gallery show highlighting their favorite images captured during the photography unit in class.  For 2020, Ms. Topazio has created a virtual show to share their work.  

Visitors can use their mouse to click through the gallery, or choose to use the guided tour.  Just be sure to "open the door" to the second hall, otherwise you'll find yourself banging your head against the wall! :)

We are beyond excited for instructors Kim Rogers and Jamie Head who lead their students to a 100% passing rate on the NC State Board CNA test last week.  Even in the most trying of times, each student enrolled in their nursing fundamentals program passed the test and are eligible to begin working as a CNA.

Our spring 2020 Auto Tech students competed in the 2020 Tech Drive Challenge.  This challenge was fully virtual and required students to receive multiple Ford Motor Company Certifications.  Our students collectively earned more factory certifications through the Ford ACE program than other schools across the nation.  As a reward, several new tools were donated to our program.

Congratulations goes out to Justin Bennett, one of our Auto Technology teachers.  Together with his colleagues, he submitted a grant proposal for a mobile classroom to the Bright Ideas Education Grants through the NC Electric Cooperatives. 

Bennett's proposal outlined an upfit of one of Auto Tech's existing enclosed trailers.  Powered by solar panels & batteries, the mobile classroom will travel to all ISS high schools to allow first year auto tech students hands-on access to electrical systems training. 

The trailer is expected to be in service for the 2201-2022 school year. 


CATS Open House Dates were cancelled due to COVID 19.
