Palestine ISD opens new career, technology center

PALESTINE, Texas (KLTV) – An East Texas high school is helping students learn craft skills with their recently opened new building.

Palestine ISD’s 33,000-square-foot career and technology center features the latest in welding and woodworking equipment, simulators and tools.

The center will offer career courses that could lead to future jobs.

School officials say that while the district continues to encourage students to go to college, there are other ways to be successful.

The new career and technology building will also house the tennis team and the drill team’s dance studio as supplies arrive to complete them.
