Owen, a CCHS student, has been working on an advocacy project through FCCLA. He was tasked with choosing a local, state, or national issue to advocate for and he decided to advocate for higher teacher pay in Cumberland County, specifically higher pay for extracurricular activities that teachers sponsor or coach. As part of this project he has conducted a school wide and county wide survey, met with district leadership team members several times, and created a required social media campaign. Owen will present his entire project at the FCCLA State Leadership Conference in late March where he will represent Cumberland County, CCHS, and his FCCLA chapter. Check out a peek into his social media campaign below.

Cumberland County School's CTE provides opportunities to students regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its program or activities and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.  Additionally, lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in CTE.  

The Cumberland County School System does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability or age in its programs or activities. The Cumberland County School System offers classes in many Career and Technical Education program areas under its open admissions policy.
