LAFAYETTE – Laura Anglin, Career Coach at Inspire Academy in LaFayette, has been named the recipient of the 2021 Career and Guidance Award from the Alabama Association for Career and Technical Education. The organization recognizes school counselors and career development professionals who have demonstrated commitment to connecting students with opportunities for success, shown innovation in career exploration and development, and have advocated for career and technical education as a viable option for all students.
“Mrs. Anglin has worked with me on my college applications and scholarships and has also given me tips on how to perfect my resume,” wrote the student who nominated Anglin for the award. “She has been just a great person to talk to about my future life and career. I was awarded the Southern Union Technical Scholarship to help further my education in cosmetology. I highly appreciate her taking time with me and every student, whether they want to attend college or not. She is very hard-working and has the determination and dedication to help anyone who comes her way!”
Anglin will represent the State of Alabama as 2021’s Career Guidance Award recipient at National ACTE’s regional conference in 2022.
The primary focus of the Alabama Association for Career and Technical Education is combining educators, industry leaders, government officials, and other stakeholders to develop a competitive workforce through advocacy, professional development, and public relations.
