HENDERSON, TX - In an effort to prepare students for their future, Henderson High School
offers a variety of industry-based certifications (or IBCs) in almost all of the school’s career paths.
Hundreds of HHS students took advantage of the programs earning a record high 447 IBC’s during
the 2022-2023 school year.
“These certifications can give our kids an edge in the marketplace,” said HISD Career and
Technology Education (CTE) Coordinator Lisa McCreary. “Or, they can allow them to get a job while
continuing their education in college or trade school. Our teachers do an amazing job of helping
students get ready to do whatever they chose after high school.”
The Henderson School Board recently recognized the HHS’s CTE teachers at their monthly
board meeting. The teachers helped students earn certifications in health care, culinary arts, computer
and technology, agriculture and law-related industries. Additionally, Suellen Perry, who teaches in the
law career path, was honored as a Master CTE teacher by Region 7 ESC, having shared her skills
with CTE teachers across the region.
