President’s Message

Greetings!Beyonka Wider, President

It is a great day in South Carolina for our CTE Educators and Business Leaders.  Welcome back SCACTE members and a very special greetings to our newest SCACTE members.  We are about to embark on another awesome school year.  I am Beyonka S. Wider, your 2016 ACTE Fellow for Region II and your new SCACTE President. I hope that each of you had an amazing experience at the 2016 Education and Business Summit! Our theme was {“Connecting Education to Careers: Be the Bridge”}. We now all stand equipped to be the bridge to close the workforce skills gap, prepare all students for high wage, high skills, and high demand careers and prepare SC graduates to be both college and career ready. 

I want to thank SCACTE for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your President.  It is an honor to be a part of a premier professional organization that assists in planning current and relevant professional development via the Education and Business Summit (EBS), advocates for all South Carolina CTE Students, Educators, and Administrators on Capitol Hill annually, represents CTE Educators at the National Policy Seminar and ACTE Region II Conferences annually while also allowing friendships to be created within both the education and business and industry communities. I am following in the footsteps of some great leaders in Career and Technology Education.

This year brings renewed energy and optimism, as we have seen positive growth and an interest in ensuring that we are continuing to prepare students in the great state of SC to leave our schools both college and career ready. Our goals continue to be focus on advocating for Career and Technology Education, to serve our members by providing high quality educational content and networking opportunities and increasing our membership. You, our members, through your commitment, involvement, and volunteerism have created a vital professional organization for all Career and Technology Education Leaders and Educators in this great state of SC.

 Please mark your calendars, as we look forward to seeing you at all of our upcoming meetings to make SC CTE great: August 27, 2016, January 14, 2017, April 1, 2017 and June 25, 2017. Thank you for your continued support, enthusiasm, and commitment to SCACTE!


Beyonka S. Wider, Ed.D.
