CTSO Officers Leading at TDCTE Legislative Breakfast #TNCTEInspires

The highlight of the Legislative Breakfast has always been the student leadership presence.  Today, February 13, 2018, was no exception.  These bright young men and women represented Career and Technical Education with excellence.  From the opening of the meeting lead by Jacqueline Ramirez, SkillsUSA President, and Julia Knaggs, FFA President, to the very relevant and inspiring words of FBLA President, Sunshine Coombs, the CSTO leaders demonstrated how student organizations develop professionals and prepare students to take the lead in Tennessee.  Thanks to all CTSO students present today.
