CTE program to feature Menomonie school district superintendent

March 19, 2012

The second annual Career and Technical Educator in Residence program will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, March 20-21, at University of Wisconsin-Stout.

UW-Stout alumna Chris Stratton, superintendent of the Menomonie school district, will serve as the Educator in Residence. She will present the keynote address “Passion for Purpose: A UW-Stout Alumni Perspective” at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, in room 110 of Jarvis Hall Science Wing.

The program is sponsored by the career and technical education programs and School of Education.

One of the goals of the Educator in Residence program is to “inspire, motivate and showcase career successes of graduates of UW-Stout,” said Carol Mooney, director of the CTE graduate programs.

The undergraduate program is an outgrowth of one of UW-Stout’s first majors, vocational education. The CTE master’s program has been offered for 75 years, since the Graduate School opened in 1935.

The CTE programs at UW-Stout are the only such majors offered in the UW System. For more information, go to www.uwstout.edu/programs/mscte.
