FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI —
The deadline for Lakeshore Technical College’s Top Tech Award Nominations is January 31. The 2ndÂ annual awards recognizeÂ the top educators in career and technical education in Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties.
A total of four awards will be given to K-12 teachers, counselors or administrators who inspire innovation and work to promote career and technical education. The Top Tech awards will be presented at a reception for high school administrators, counselors and teachers on February 20 at the Lakeshore Culinary Institute in Sheboygan.
“This is a great opportunity for students, parents, colleagues, and administrators to recognize a teacher who has made a difference in career and technical education at the high school level,” says Sara Greenwood, LTC High School Liasion Coordinator. “The process is easy and the recognition the winners receive is equally as satisfying as it is to the nominators.”
All nominees must be K-12 staff members serving students in grades 9-12. Nominees should also demonstrate innovation in promotion of career and technical education, mentor and inspire students to uncover and pursue their career passions, and participate in outreach activities.
Last year’s winners were Ron Schneider and Dave Teske from Kiel High School representing Manitowoc County while Ed Hughes of Sheboygan Falls High School represented Sheboygan County.
