LUBBOCK, TX--- A new multimedia program is helping students decide what they want to be when they grow up. Frenship ISD is teaming up with CEV Multimedia to help students choose one of five areas of focus in high school.

A new education bill, House Bill 5, requires students to choose one of five focuses, or endorsements, when they enter high school: science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); business and industry; public service; arts and humanities; or multidisciplinary.

Frenship ISD's partnership with CEV Multimedia will help eighth grade students decide which one they will follow.

"Its more individualized now rather than say one particular education fits all. It gives the student a choice," said Greg Hernandez, Principal at Frenship Heritage Middle School.

CEV uses career training videos that students can access online. This is the first year that Frenship has partnered with CEV. School officials say, this partnership will be a big help in shaping students' futures.

"It kind of gives them an idea of how they want to graduate now," said Hernandez.

CEV Multimedia said they plan to work with more school districts in the future and create more interactive features to help future students.
