Seminar: Career and Technical Education through Agricultural Education for Native American Populations

Posted: March 23, 2017

Kayenta Unified School District in Kayenta, Arizona is a 2,000-student district on the Navajo Reservation with a powerhouse veterinary-science program that provides students deep knowledge of meaningful opportunities to support a Navajo community where families depend on livestock as their livelihood. The seminar will include Clyde McBride, Director of Career and Technical Education; Elissa McBride, Agriscience Teacher; and Monument Valley FFA members discussing their program and what has allowed them to build their agricultural program.

Mr. Clyde McBride was recognized as a 2015 ACTE Teacher of the Year and has been identified as a 2017 Education Week "Leader to Learn From."  Mr. McBride has built a powerhouse pre-veterinary-sciences program that gives Navajo students hands-on experience that propels them to college and prepares them for jobs.  Students gain deep knowledge and meaningful opportunities to support their community where many Navajo families depend on livestock as their livelihood.  Watch this YouTube video to gain a better idea of the agricultural program at Monument Valley High School: youtube.com/watch?v=vUQT6jIrWq0&feature=youtu.be.
