Idaho Lt. Governor Joins CTE Foundation Board
Lieutenant Governor Janice McGeachin has agreed to serve on the Board of Directors for the Idaho Career & Technical Education Foundation.
The Foundation, established in 1983, is a non-profit corporation that works with industry and other partners to raise private dollars to add to state and federal dollars used to fund CTE programs throughout Idaho.
“I’m thrilled to join the Idaho Career Technical Education Foundation during the 100th anniversary of CTE in Idaho,” Lt. Gov. McGeachin said. “We are fortunate that Idaho has made significant strides in CTE training over the last century. Today we have dynamic programs throughout the state but we must increase our support and must work with our partners in the private sector to develop new and innovating strategies that will continue to enable Idahoans to obtain the skills they need for good-paying jobs right here in our state. I look forward to working with the foundation to assure success for the next 100 years.”
ICTEF Board Chairman Dr. Harold Nevill says the Lt. Governor’s presence on the Board will benefit the program. “Lt. Governor McGeachin has been a champion of workforce development for years, and since ICTEF is committed to stimulating and promoting quality career and technical education to fill the needs of Idaho’s growing workforce, her experience is a great fit for our mission.”
Governor Brad Little recently declared February CTE month in Idaho. To learn more about the Idaho Career & Technical Education Foundation, visit the Foundation’s website at:
