The Montana Association for Career and Technical Education announces that Katelyn Gorder, a family and consumer science teacher at Skyview High School in Billings, has been selected to receive the 2022 Montana Career and Technical Education Community Service Award.
Ms. Gorder is this year’s recipient of the award for her work with students in her Family and Consumer Sciences program. Nominated for the award by fellow FCS teachers in Montana, Ms. Gorder encourages students to work in teams or as individuals on community service projects. Its FCCLA members organize several community service events in the Billings area.
The Community Service Award is given to ACTE members who have used the CTE to make a significant impact on a community or humanitarian cause through leadership in programs and activities that promote community engagement. This award was named in honor of the late Congressman Carl D. Perkins of Kentucky and is designed to recognize individuals who have demonstrated the same humanitarian concerns exemplified by Congressman Perkins.
