State Rep. David Martin recently took action to declare February as Career and Technical Education Month in the state of Michigan.

Martin, of Davison, said career and technical education (CTE) is important because it ensures skilled workers are ready, willing and capable of holding jobs in high-wage and in-demand career fields.

“Vocational skills, a strong work ethic, and numerous skilled trade employers are what make up the fabric of our community in Genesee County,” Martin said. “Michigan is facing a skilled trades worker shortage, with half-a-million job openings estimated over the next seven years. As high school students consider career fields to explore when preparing for the next step in their education, CTE classes offered by their school play a vital role in helping to make these important decisions.”

Martin’s measure, House Resolution 29, declares February as Career and Technical Education Month in Michigan, and encourages continued investment into this vital part of Michigan’s education system. It was adopted by the House on Thursday.
