MCHS Awarded $600,000 CTE Grant
MCUSD Grant Application for the California Career Pathways Trust Grant
MCHS has applied and been awarded a $600,000 onetime CTE grant through the California Career Pathways Trust.
The grant was prepared and submitted by MCHS Principal Celeste Azevedo and MCUSD Special Education Director, Marcia Miller with the assistance of MCHS Ag Teachers, Buz Arnold and Michelle Wise and retired Ag Teacher, Wayne Forsythe and the Ag Advisory group.
MCUSD requested funding through the CCPT grant for MCHS to expand three targeted career pathways that fall under the umbrella of the Agricultural, Food, Natural Resources and Manufacturing sector. The pathways selected include: Animal Science, Plant Science, and Welding/Agriculture Mechanics.
The CCPT grant does not require matching funds, however the grant does require the district to provide an “in-kind” match through resources already available. In addition, the district must show they will be able to sustain the expanded program after the grant is exhausted.
Year 1 of the grant will be utilized to renovate facilities, solidify and expand course offerings, and provide professional development, training, and expanded “field experience” opportunities to students enrolled in the pathway.
Year 2 of the grant will be utilized to hire 1 FTE in Agriculture to expand course offerings
Year 3 of the grant will be utilized to further expand course offerings in the Agriculture Pathways

Students and School Employees Honored by Masons
Since 1920, the Masonic Lodges of California have recognized and celebrated community schools as part of their proclaimed Public Schools Month. Mariposa Lodge No. 24 held its annual “Recognition Night” on Friday, May 2, to recognize the outstanding teachers and scholars of the Mariposa County Unified School District.
Following a dinner hosted by the Masons for teachers, scholars, and their families, scholarships of $1,000 each were presented to Laura Louise Shenk (not pictured) and Tierney Jon Pretzer to attend a college or university, to Kayla Crismon-Gilgo to attend a trade or technical program, and to Dawn Canapary, the district’s outstanding eighth grader.
The evening culminated with presentations of recognition to the MCUSD Teacher of the Year, Katie Kelly, and MCUSD Classified Employee of the Year, Gerri Hamilton. Also honored were numerous teacher and classified nominees and “honorable mentions” from sites throughout the District.
