Graphic Arts Instructor Andrea Boettner of the Clare-Gladwin Career Center has been awarded $1,500 in grants by the Michigan Industrial and Technology Education Society (MITES) to fund classroom activities and professional development opportunities. Specifically, Boettner will receive $650 to purchase class cameras, $250 for educational field trips, and $600 to attend special workshops and trainings.
According to their website, the generosity of the Abrams Foundation allows MITES to offer numerous scholarships and grants to help support career and technical education in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Canada.
Graphic Arts is one of nine career and technical education (CTE) programs offered to high school juniors and seniors at the Clare-Gladwin Career Center, a program of the Clare-Gladwin RESD. The students spend half of their day at their CTE program and the other half at their local high school.
