“Imaginations are what will carry us to the future, and [for me] Digital Harbor helped to expand it,” 7th grader Jacob Leggette proclaimed in front of the full room at the Senate Career and Technical (CTE) Education Caucus and Afterschool Alliance Briefing on June 25. The briefing, “Making the Most of Middle School Career Exploration in CTE,” put a spotlight on the importance of community partners in career and technical education state planning and implementation.
