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 CTE leaders to be visionary, progressive and responsive. We must successfully prepare and connect more students to postsecondary education and ensure 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 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 focusing on members’ needs and education and industry requirements. My record of national leadership in Agricultural Education and dedication as an educator show that I can assist ACTE to meet the changing needs of our students, educators and programs. I believe that we must promote seamless transitions to college and careers, connect STEM components to all of our programs and provide clear, consistent communications to serve our members and all educators preparing people for careers.
