La Vernia ISD CTE students participated in the Texas Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (TX FAME) partnership with several local community entities to learn about the Agricultural Engineering pathway.
Several junior and senior students in the Applied Agricultural Engineering Program of Study had the opportunity to tour a few manufacturing facilities that are part of the TX FAME Lone Star. They had tours at CMC Steel Texas, Cavco and Alamo Industrial. It was a chance for them to see potential workplaces and ask industry leaders about job opportunities available.
