Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO)
aka: CTE Clubs
All students are encouraged to actively participate in extracurricular activities/clubs offered at EHS. Students participating in after-school activities must have supervision by the club’s faculty or staff supervisor. The following CTSOs or clubs are scheduled for the 2018—2019 school year:
The purpose of the CSI Team is to allow students the ability to display the skills learned during the entire Criminal Justice curriculum and compete against other programs in the region. There are not regular meeting times. Most participants have taken Forensics and merely practice their skills the week before the competition that occurs in November of each school year.

Top Gun Aviation Club
The Top Gun Aviation Club is a club that meets before or after school on a regular basis to discover aviation through a series of discussions, hand-on activities, and tours of different facilities. The primary objective is to encourage students to remain drug free, as well as helping them to discover different careers they can take for achieving their life goals. During the school year, the CTSO will participate in many different trips and activities, some of which include, but are not limited to, community service opportunities, fund raisers, tours of the Elizabethton Municipal Airport, Bell Helicopter in Piney Flats, the United Company’s hangar at Tri-Cities Regional Airport, the ATC tower and approach control facility at the Tri-Cities Regional Airport, the Tennessee Aviation Museum in Sevierville, and the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton, Ohio.

The Elizabethton FFA Chapter actively competes in agricultural based Career and Leadership Development Events to develop competent and assertive agricultural leaders.
Health Occupation Students of America
The HOSA club (Health Occupations of America) is a national vocational student organization, focusing on the enrichment and delivery of quality health care to all people. Members are students who are taking or have taken a Health Science Class while they are attending EHS. It is a wonderful opportunity to compete in Health Science Competitions at the Regional, State, and National level. The club hosts two blood drives each year as a Community Service Outreach Project. We have the Fall Blood Drive on the “open football game Friday day” during Football Season and we try to have the Spring Fall Blood Drive on the last available Friday in April, before testing. We are known for our sale of roses around Valentine’s Day as a fundraiser. The HOSA club is a wonderful way to make friends with fellow students who are considering a career in the field of health care.
The USA Skills Club is a combination of various career/technical education (CTE) skills. Students will meet on a regular basis to discuss and work together addressing different components of the CTE program at EHS.
