Meet Caden Bushell: Future Business Manager
“When I was in sixth grade I decided that I wanted to gain an education and become the first in my family to earn a college degree. Now that I am a senior, that goal to earn a college degree is underway. I will graduate [from high school] with 22 college credits and will be ready to continue on that path.
“My short-term education goal is to earn an associate degree in business. I aspire to lead others by example. I like being challenged and I would enjoy seeing progress from applying the skills I have learned.
“I enjoy learning about things that will make me more successful in the future. That is a big reason why I chose to take CTE classes in high school. With the Business Leadership [class] I wanted to understand the business side of a company and all of the pieces that go together to make any business successful. I am glad I have learned all that I have in my CTE courses. They have taught me that you need hard work, dedication, and discipline to achieve anything you aspire to do. I am glad I have taken advantage of all the educational opportunities available to me so that I can become a better person.”
