Temple Grandin Brings Powerful Message, Support for CTE Programs to WHS

Temple Grandin never let her diagnosis of autism define her and she is living proof that everyone has abilities and skills that defy labels. Grandin, the subject of a critically acclaimed HBO movie, came to Westminster High School (WHS) last week to talk about her life and encourage students to explore all available career choices.

Grandin is a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and an expert in animal behavior. Teachers from the Career & Technical Education (CTE) program at WHS invited her to come and speak about careers in the animal sciences industry.   

By days end they had a much better appreciation of not just CTE programs, but also the human spirit. Watch the What's Up WPS exclusive above to learn more about Grandin and what our CTE students learned from her.
