“Bravo Zulu CHS Drafting!”

E. H. Lindsey, CD, CDD, Citrus High School’s Drafting Coordinator and Educator announced on Wednesday that 34 CHS students who passed their ADDA Apprentice Mechanical Drafting Certification exam.

Mr. Lindsey further announced that CHS student Jimmie Brannock made a perfect score on the exam! Brannock is the first person in the United States to score a perfect 100 on this exam!

Citrus High School and Mr. Lindsey’s drafting program is again ranked # 1 in Florida and the Southeastern High Schools and colleges and # 2 in the United States for the fifth year in a row.

Including this latest group of students, CHS has now certified 255 Draftsmen: 159 Professional Level and 96 Apprentice Level Mechanical Draftsmen.  Among those 53 students where certified during this 2012-2013 academic year alone.

CHS Drafting program is another of Citrus County School District’s shining examples of how Career and Technical Education can be incorporated into high school curriculum.  While many of Mr. Lindsey’s students will likely continue on to colleges and universities in varies fields these certifications provided them with job ready skills immediately following high school graduation.  These students in the past using these certifications have begun work directly out of high school while continuing their schooling in college, and others have moved to different careers but have used these certifications and knowledge to lead them on their successful  career paths.

Bravo Zulu to CHS, Mr. Lindsey, and especially Jimmie Brannock and these outstanding students!
