The ABYC Foundation said it is accepting nominations for its Educator of the Year Award through Sept. 21. Nominees must be currently teaching marine service technology in a high school, post-secondary school or corporate setting.
“There are more than 16,000 marine technician positions currently open in the U.S., and the ABYC Foundation is working to support marine-service teachers who are critical to on-board quality marine employees of the future,” ABYC Foundation executive director Margaret Podlich said in a statement.
Last year’s winner, Stephen Spencer from Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth, Fla., along with two runners-up, will speak at the ABYC Foundation Educator Training Conference, to be held virtually July 20-22.
