The ACTE Champion for CTE award winners stand out for their dedication to furthering career and technical education (CTE). These groups and individuals exemplify the qualities of true leadership from the business, industry and education communities. We are proud of Mr. Schulman’s accomplishments and his contributions to CTE.
