Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center Recognized in Texas School Business Magazine

Texas School Business magazine announced Friday that Lubbock ISD's Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center is one of 12 programs to be featured in the magazine's first Bragging Rights special issue. Bragging Rights recognizes school districts that have implemented programs that are bettering the lives of students, schools and communities. The special issue is slated for distribution on Dec. 1 to more than 10,000 readers with a vested interest in Texas public education.

The Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center provides in-demand skills training and certifications for students of all four high schools in Lubbock ISD. District administrators joined forces with higher education (South Plains College) and industry (Lubbock Economic Development Alliance) to provide seamless pathways for students to enter college and the skilled workforce.

"We were impressed by Lubbock ISD's foresight to provide students with skills and training that are relevant to today's job market," says Texas School Business Editor Mary Gordon Spence.  "We're proud to brag about Lubbock ISD in our first annual special issue."

"It's a great honor for our district to be recognized by Texas School Business," said Superintendent Wayne Havens.  "The Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center is a model for the state and has received tremendous support from our community.  Our partnership, beginning with South Plains College and Lubbock Economic Development Alliance and now including Texas Tech University, has yielded a wide variety of programs to meet individual student needs," Havens added.

For 54 years, Texas School Business has been the independent voice for public education in Texas. The magazine, which publishes 10 times a year and is read by educators and school administrators across Texas, is accepting nominations for the 2008 issue of Bragging Rights.
