Tom Bayless is the administrator of Nicholas County Career and Technical Center. “I love how the culture of CTE focuses on the students. From student-led companies to helping students obtain employment or enroll in post-secondary education. The culture and curriculum of CTE are unique by focusing on academic, employability, and technical skills, giving students the opportunity to take advantage of the high-skill high-wage careers,” said Bayless.
The school is currently working on building 10 additional “Almost Heaven” swings and signs for West Virginia Tourism. This innovative project requires collaboration between multiple programs from design to construction.
