Wantagh Seniors Receive Cte Technical Endorsements

The Wantagh High School Business Department is pleased to announce that six seniors have earned Career and Technical Education endorsements that can be added to college applications and job resumes. This is the first group of students who have fulfilled the requirements for the department’s CTE pathway for students, and students have been working to acquire the endorsement since the eighth grade. 

In order to earn a CTE endorsement, students fulfilled the minimum number of business education credits required for endorsement. The students provided a digital portfolio of a cover letter, resume, writing sample, employability profile and recommendations from all business teachers. Each endorsement requires 3.5 credits either in accounting or in business management and entrepreneurship, as well as credit in one of the department’s optional courses.  

Business teacher Nancy O’Connor said the students were really eager to earn the endorsements. “The endorsement shows to colleges and future employers that the students are college and career ready.” 

The district congratulates the following students on earning a CTE endorsement:   

*Benjamin Ambrosio – Accounting and Business Management & Entrepreneurship 

Kyle Anderson – Business Management & Entrepreneurship 

Leena Moussa – Business Management & Entrepreneurship 

*Mark Russo – Accounting and Business Management & Entrepreneurship 

Alexa Salerno – Accounting 

*Justin Treiland –  Accounting and Business Management & Entrepreneurship
