President’s Message

Bryan HearnGreetings fellow Career & Technical Educators --

It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as your SCACTE president for this school year. As a previous CTE Director at Lexington Technology Center, and now as principal of a comprehensive high school, I certainly understand the power of Career and Technical Education in students’ lives. The stories of life-changing opportunities for South Carolina students are so cool and diverse! Our organization advocates for all things related to the implementation, promotion, recruitment, and sustainability of CTE pathways and certifications. Our members are the administrators, instructors, and counselors who make these stories happen, and I was thrilled to accept the leadership gavel from Tana in June.

If you do not have it on your calendar already, please be sure to add the Find Your Inspiration (FYI) Conference in January. It will be held January 10-12 in Myrtle Beach. The opportunity to meet, mentor, and encourage ALL early career educators is a significant one, and we need your help to make it the most impactful and inspiring conference! Much more information about FYI will be released after the organizing committee’s meeting on August 28th.

Thank you for taking the time to review this edition of the SCACTE Newsletter. I would like to thank Mrs. Marcelle Boland for her hard work and dedication in compiling all of this information and keeping us all up to date.

If there is EVER anything that you would like to discuss about CTE or SCACTE, my contact information is connected to this column. Please do not hesitate to reach out.

Have a wonderful 2019-2020 school year!

Best Regards, Bryan Hearn
