    Kim Orrick | Past President

    When I joined GACTE and later chose to run for office on the board of directors, it was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made for my professional career. I gained a new appreciation of ALL Career and Technical Education. It is so rewarding to be part of an association with so many passionate educators who take great pride in their profession and all working to make a real difference in students’ lives.

    Matthew Gambill | Executive Director

    My passion for CTAE began when I was a sophomore in high school. The skills I learned were invaluable and birthed within me the passion I have for CTAE teachers, students and programs. I know the benefit that our programs have on the lives of the students we teach. Our CTAE teachers are the most dedicated and hardworking individuals I have ever met and they inspire me to make sure that CTAE and GACTE are being adequately represented at the local, state and national levels. I want to ensure that GACTE is meeting the needs of our teachers while also advocating for the future of our CTAE programs.
