 Instructor:  Engineering and Robotics I and II 
             This is currently my 21st year at the Career and Technical Center and 31st year overall.  I am very excited about this year as we have a record enrollment for this program.  We have 15 second year students  and 48 first year students.  We will also have 3 Career Pathways Experience student interns who have completed the two years of the program.  We also continue to be excited about our TSA chapter which recieved a Chapter Excellence award for Mississippi at the National TSA Conference in Washington DC this past summer, the second time we have received this award as the top TSA chapter in MS.  We had 11 students to attend the National TSA Conference in Washington DC and now have attended 7 straight national TSA conferences and 8 of the last 9.  We continue to expand the Vex Robotics competitions and intend to increase our number of Vex competitive teams to three this year.
