Platform Statement: Changes in our world, such as an ever growing population and declining natural resources, over the next 40 years will continue to require Career and Technical Education leaders to be visionary, progressive and responsive. We must successfully prepare greater numbers of students for postsecondary education while ensuring their success and readiness for current and emerging careers. We must model and promote seamless transitions to postsecondary experiences and/or careers for all students. The numbers and needs of students and educators are changing daily. Global industry requires us to ensure that we increase science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills of all learners, and prepare them for societal changes. Global changes will also require increased, clear and consistent communications that focus on members’ needs and education and industry requirements. My record of leadership in Agricultural Education, on the ACTE Board as Region I Vice President and as ACTE Finance Chair, as well as my dedication as a state leader show that I can assist ACTE to meet the changing needs of our students, educators and programs.

Agricultural Education

Meet Nancy Trivette

Agricultural education is an important part of career and technical education, and the voice of agricultural educators must be heard within the leadership of the Association for Career and Technical Education. My interest in serving as the Agricultural Education Division vice president is in providing effective representation of the total membership in the agricultural education profession—secondary agricultural education teachers, state agricultural education staff, postsecondary agricultural educators and university agricultural educators.

Agricultural Education Division

The ACTE Agricultural Education Division's membership base includes agriculture teachers (elementary, secondary, postsecondary, adult), state agricultural education leaders and university agricultural educators. Originating with the Smith-Hughes Act of 1917, this Division's mission is to prepare students for successful careers and a lifetime of choices in the global agriculture and natural resources systems.
