New changes are at Tanner High School to help students prepare for life after graduation.
The new renovated Limestone County Career Technical Center is on Tanner's campus this year. Now students won't have to leave the campus to take special courses at the tech center. Under the program students can take finance, family consumer science and agriculture classes. A new commercial grade greenhouse will also be built at Tanner.
"It's a huge agriculture community. We want project-based learning. We want them to run this greenhouse, operate a business so they're getting the finance, the business and the marketing, the skills and agriculture all in one project-based learning facility here on campus," said Tanner High School's Principal Debbie Kenyon.
Students also have the opportunity to take more advance placement courses this year. The school plans for the greenhouse construction to be complete by this spring.
