Last month, Gateway Technical College hosted their annual “K-12 Admin Breakfast” event for local high school administrators. Each year the theme of this event is different, and this year, the event emphasized the importance of precision measurement, math, and manufacturing. Schools in attendance were able to join in person at the SC Johnson iMet Center Room at Gateway Technical College or virtually via Zoom.
During the event, Bryan Albrecht, President & CEO of Gateway Technical College, and Rich Shouse, Division Chair of Manufacturing, Engineering and Information Technology at Gateway Technical College shared new program, funding, and industry partnership opportunities with schools in attendance.
The event also featured speakers from one of Gateway Technical College’s world-class industry partners, the L.S Starrett Company. Rick Marble, National Sales Manager for Starrett, shared a heartfelt message about quality, accuracy, and pride instilled in doing things right. Each school that attended received a Starrett Education measurement kit to take back for their CTE and mathematics teachers.
“Our high school administrators’ breakfast meeting has a rich history of building a foundation of trust and cooperation to address the importance and value of post-secondary technical education pathways for all students,” Bryan Albrecht said. Gateway Technical College looks forward to hosting this event each year, and NC3 believes it’s something other post-secondary schools in the NC3 Network can use as a model to help them better connect with, and inspire, their dual enrollment education partners.
