Tupelo Career-Tech’s CTE Express Rides in Christmas Parade

A collaboration between multiple Tupelo Career-Technical Center classes allowed the CTE Express to ride in Dec. 4’s Tupelo Christmas parade. Construction and welding students built the Express’ frame, and collision repair students painted it. Additionally, early childhood education and family and consumer science students painted the wheels, and CTE teachers helped with last-minute preparations.
