The Santa Cruz County Career Technical Education Partnership (formerly ROP) provides students with the opportunity to acquire academic, career and technical skills and to prepare for life-long learning and success in the changing workplace.
Aptos High senior and CTEP Video Production student Amanda Fort is officially a professional in the world of sports media! Fort, the best female golfer in the county, combined her love of golf and video production to get a job with CBS Sports for their coverage of the AT&T Pro-Am Tournament held in Pebble Beach last weekend.
CBS personnel commended Amanda for her work and her professionalism. She got to do live, on-course audio, following the professionals and amateurs around the golf course for 4 straight days. Among the golfers she got to follow: future hall-of-famer Phil Mickelson, and the #3 ranked player in the world, Jordan Spieth. Congrats Amanda!
Hildebrands donate to CTEP
Andy and Georganna Hildebrand are local residents who recently donated approximately $80,000 of equipment and lumber to the Santa Cruz County Career Technical Education Partnership programs.
This equipment and lumber will be used by hundreds of students at the following high schools: Harbor High School, San Lorenzo Valley High School, Natural Bridges Green Career Center, Soquel High School, Ponderosa High School, Sequoia High School, and Watsonville High School. Andy and Georganna were very gracious in donating fairly new woodworking equipment, vehicles, and premium lumber that he milled himself.
