Katie Rice (WPS CTE Coordinator) and Mike Perry (Perry Engineering)Annually, the VSBA requests school divisions to submit for recognition outstanding businesses who collaborate and support the school division. In order to build a successful community ecosystem, it is vital that education and business and industry align to develop the skills necessary to align and develop the skills, dispositions, and attributes of local citizens.
