Alexandria and Arlington CTAE Joint Advisory Committee Meeting

In the culinary arts kitchen at TC Williams High School, where Chef Craig Scheuerman and his students hosted our joint Career & Technical Education meeting between the Arlington and Alexandria advisory committees. We reviewed data on internships and discussed a web tool to connect students with employers, while enjoying an excellent dinner made by the students. Leaders from business and labor included Dennis Desmond of LiUNA, supporting CTE. Thank you to David Remick for organizing, and Sherri Chapman and Kris Martini for bringing our advisory committees together. And thanks to ACPS School Board member Ronnie Campbell for joining us for dinner and supporting Career & Technical Education.
