Channelview, TX. October 21, 2021 – A crowd of business and community leaders, citizens, elected representatives, and their staff gathered to witness the formal opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of the CVISD’s CTE (Career and Technical Education) and Fine Arts wing of Channelview High School located on Sheldon Road. After the ribbon cutting guests were given an inside tour of the new facilities.
Back in the 60’s when I was in high school, after graduation very few students could attend college. There wasn’t any college loan help, and so they were turned out into an uncertain future, mostly without any formal technical education. Channelview voters and the Trustees have made a sizable investment for their students’ futures that will return positive results for their community.
State Representative Ana Hernandez said, “With the addition of the Career and Technical Education wing, new library, and new auditorium, Channelview ISD is giving our students state-of-the-art facilities where they can grow, learn, and thrive. These improvements open new possibilities for our students and prepare them for success.”
