This is the last time I will send you greetings from NAPE as the CEO. The past 23 years on the journey of growing NAPE has been incredibly rewarding for me professionally and personally. I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you and learning from you. The work that we are all doing to expand opportunities for girls, women, students of color, students with disabilities, English language learners, low-income students, LGBTQIA students--every student in CTE and STEM--is so incredibly important. It has been a privilege to work alongside all of you in this effort and to grow NAPE's expertise and resources in this work.
I am excited about handing the reins over to Dr. Ben Williams and to continuing to support NAPE as a consultant on a few special projects. I encourage you to provide input to NAPE's future and take advantage of all that it has to offer you today.
For access, equity and diversity,
