This month, Leander ISD is highlighting the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources cluster within the district’s Career and Technical Education program.

“It’s fun to be able to make something with, you know, your own two hands, and be able to put something together that may not be obvious or the easiest thing to do,” Vandegrift High School student Truman Labaj said.

Students in this cluster have several programs of study to choose from: Applied Engineering and Agriculture, Animal Science, Plant Science and Environmental and Natural Resources.

“While I’m not going to be a veterinarian, or I don’t intend to currently, I do want to pursue business and taking the programs and working through the CTE classes, I’ve been able to get more skills that I will need for my job,” Cedar Park High School student Katelyn Groppe said. “Competing in job interviews, I’ve learned to coherently answer questions and stay calm during these or any different kind of interview or application process.”
