Career and Technical Education Day

On January 16th, 2015 Sam Houston hosted our 3rd annual Career and Technical Education Day. The event was a total success with over twenty five GISD high school programs and twenty-five members of the community. The presenters educated the students on all of the options open to them in the years after middle school and beyond.
