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.
