It was announced last week that once again this year, Fayette Institute of Technology is being honored for its excellence. Fayette County Schools Superintendent Keith Butcher announced the school was chosen as one of three premier career technical centers in West Virginia for 2014. The award is presented by the West Virginia Department of Education’s Division of Adult and Technical Education. “FIT relies heavily on craft advisory councils comprised of business, industry, former students and community partners to evaluate and advise the current programs,” said FIT Principal Barry Crist. “As a result of this involvement, FIT consistently has been recognized as a leader in career and technical education (CTE).” In the accompanying photo, adult student Jeff Adkins works in an Auto CAD class at FIT.
