A Clark County School District high school teacher was arrested on Thursday and faces charges of committing a sex act with a student, according to Metro booking logs. Kristy Kay Yegge a teacher at Veterans Tribute Career & Technical Academy, 2531 Vegas Drive, near Rancho Drive, was working with the school's emergency medical technician program at the time of her arrest, said Melinda Malone, CCSD spokeswoman. Yegge has been employed with the district since 2003. Yegge, 38, is still employed but "she is not allowed to be on that campus or any other campus" as the investigation is pending, Malone said. Metro confirmed on Monday the charges involve a student from the school between the ages of 16 and 17. In 2012, Yegge was honored as the statewide adviser of the year for heading her school's chapter of HOSA-Future Health Professionals, a national career and technical student organization that prepares high school and college students for the healthcare field, according to the school's website.
