Greetings from ACTE!
This week I’m attending the conference for the Association of Career and Technical Education (ACTE) in Nashville, Tenn. We had a great board meeting and CMI at Tennessee State University yesterday.
I’m in opening session now. I’m very proud to see Ed Mellott, former SkillsUSA Board of Directors member, leading the session as the 2009 ACTE president. I’m also proud to see the Tennessee SkillsUSA students as welcome/greeters to welcome all to opening session this morning.
The keynote speaker of the opening session is Chef Jeff Henderson. He’s a former prison inmate, now mentorand star of the Food Network program, The Chef Jeff Project.
I’m looking forward to the workshops today ‑ including two sessions on the Work Force Ready System. Make sure to review the ACTE Staff schedule for other SkillsUSA workshops throughout the convention.
Our booth opens today at 10 a.m. (CST). We have some great SkillsUSA National Officers here leading the booth.
