Welcome Message from SCACTE President
As summer winds down, we feel the excitement and anticipation of a new school year. I hope this letter finds you refreshed, energized and ready to engage students in the most impactful area of education in our state.
Career and Technical Education has provided endless opportunities for students who choose to take advantage of the real-world education and experiences we provide. My own career choice was heavily influenced by CTE as a high school student back in the late 1900’s. I try everyday to “pay it forward” to the students in my classroom, just as my CTE teachers did for me.
As this year's South Carolina Association of Career and Technical Educators
President, I look forward to getting to know more of you who share my passion for CTE in our great state. I challenge each of you to be an active participant in your division and hope you encourage others in your schools, districts and regions to do the same. Remember: you are not on an island - there are numerous resources and advocates available to help you as you navigate this school year.
I am excited to see what great things we can achieve for CTE in South Carolina. Please don’t hesitate to contact me or any member of the SCACTE Board if we can be of assistance. I hope you have a great start to your school year.
New SCACTE Executive Director
We are very pleased to announce that Brenda J. Baldwin will join the South Carolina Association of Career and Technical Educators as Executive Director. Ms. Baldwin began her journey with us on 8 September 2023.
As Executive Director, Baldwins responsibilities will include performing administrative duties necessary for maintaining SCACTE office, planning and conducting meetings, communicating with elected officers and members; assisting officers by coordinating meetings/activities of the Executive Committee, Board of Directors, and Assembly of Delegates; developing and implementing membership/marketing plan to recruit and retain SCACTE membership base; and coordinating, in cooperation with the South Carolina CTE State Director, the exhibitors’ component of CTE Summer Conference/Education Business Summit.
Baldwin comes to us with more than 30 years of leadership experience, having served as an Office Manager, Cytotechnologist, digital and print editor, and equine judge. She has expertise in Agriculture Education Programs, SC FFA Association, and the SC Young Farmer and Agribusiness Association. Most recently, Baldwin worked for Clemson University and recent accomplishments have included providing support material for FFA Career Development Events in over 23 areas and assisting with the invoicing and collection of receipts from sponsors and in managing the state association annual auction to include invoicing and collecting payments for the SC FFA.
Baldwin received a bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of South Carolina- Columbia and pursued additional studies and certifications from the Medical University of South Carolina-Charleston and the American College of Clinical Pathology.
