Dighton-Rehoboth Student Named Outstanding CTE Scholar


A Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School senior was recently named one of 50 outstanding CTE Scholars in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Dennis Correia has been in the Marketing program for four years. He is the major producer of content in the program.

An awards banquet, hosted by The Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators (MAVA) was held on April 11 at Mechanics Hall in Worcester. The event attracts more than 500 educators, public officials, parents, and students to honor these promising seniors. 

Correia has a number of original posters that he has designed for the high school Marketing program.  He has completed a two-poster advertising set for the CTE office promoting Dighton-Rehoboth’s seven CTE Programs to the two middle schools and throughout our towns. 

“Dennis has also developed the logo for the Falcons Nest school store and has been instrumental in producing banners with our newest wide-format printer,” said Superintendent Bill Runey.

Correia also has worked for his family’s tattoo business and keeps a part-time job working with younger students as a coach and event coordinator at Teamworks, a local recreation and party center. He is anticipating entering a career in the real estate world after his graduation.

“Dennis is a two-sport athlete competing in Football and Basketball for the high school teams. He exhibits leadership qualities on the athletic fields and in the Marketing Program, taking on projects that require creativity and timeliness.  He is always professional in his customer-client relationships,” Runey added.
