As we close out 2017, we would like to bid a special farewell to two of our esteemed board members: Steve Kurmas and Marie Hocker.
2018 will bring many exciting changes to Advancing Macomb, including the addition of two new board members: Mark Stiers and Douglas Messana.
In celebration of the giving season, Advancing Macomb is setting the spotlight on a local artist who truly gives back to our community: Anne Nicolazzo. As a long-time resident of Macomb County, you may have spotted her at various community events over the years. She can usually be found behind the camera, but freelance photographer Anne Nicolazzo is more than just a behind-the-scenes gal; in fact, she is a professional and artistic leader, who dedicates her artistry to bettering the community.
The CAD and Manufacturing programs of Van Dyke Public Schools’ Lincoln High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program are partnering with local companies for the benefit of students and employers; the result being highly trained student interns and graduates who are able to “step” right into positions in their local communities.
Learning by doing, in engaging, real-world context—from passionate teachers who have actual work experience in the field—has always been at the heart of the best career and technical education (CTE) programs. Combine that with the fact that the most powerful learning experiences often result from partnerships, both within our educational system and outside of it. In Chippewa Valley Schools, we’re proud that you will find a well-established, exemplary model of both.
