2016 UACTE Career Guidance Award
The way Ruth has contributed to CTE is by creating ways for students to learn and apply their knowledge in innovative and exciting ways. From her years in the classroom until today, she has managed the Academy Programs and high school FACS teachers in Granite District. Ruth has tried to create experiences for students to apply what they learn in CTE classes. The Granite School District Academy Awards is a day where students compete for best job application, best interview, and best resume awards. The Academy Advisory Board Members present workshops and conduct individual interviews to give our students a “real experience” in the job search process. Her goal as a CTE educator has been to encourage and guide students to realize their own potential and to understand that CTE education is a practical way to enrich their lives.
