Student Organizations

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO’s) can play an important role in every CTE student’s experience. CTSO’s develop character, leadership, technical, and teamwork skills and are a natural extension of the classroom. Additionally, students involved in student organizations have the opportunity to participate in competitions locally and beyond.

Lamar CISD actively sponsors the following student organizations:
