Picture on Left - Freeport High School’s Gabriel Garrett excelled in his Automation and Production Tech class to obtain his Certified Production Technician Certification, or CPT, in record time. He was the first freshman to complete the CPT. This achievement is even more significant due to the fact that Gabriel has a visual impairment and utilized adaptive technology during all aspects of the curriculum. After graduation in 2020 Gabriel wants to pursue a degree in some field of engineering. Pictured with instructor, Ted Missildine.

Picture on Top Right - Scott Howard, a senior in the manufacturing and pre-engineering academy at Freeport High School, has earned his Certified Production Technician certificate. Scott says " I want to pursue a career in the automotive field. The CPT skills I have learned will continue to help me in problem solving and maintenance as I move into my future career."

Megan was the first female to finish the CPT, followed closely by her friend and classmate Emily, at FHS. Both Megan and Emily hope to continue their future education in manufacturing and engineering.
