At the conclusion of 2023, New Jersey’s county vocational-technical schools each awarded a Business Partner of the Year. This annual recognition is a time for schools to highlight the value an employer or individual professional adds to one or more of their career programs. 

“Our county vocational-technical schools are effective because they are committed to providing students with relevant education and training opportunities in their field of study,” said Jackie Burke, executive director of the New Jersey Council of County Vocational-Technical Schools (NJCCVTS). “A big part of that commitment involves developing relationships with industry partners who offer guidance related to curriculum and open doors for students to work-based learning. These partners become critical for effective and impactful career and technical education.”

The 2023 honorees represent a range of industries and make contributions that meet the specific needs of the programs they support. From leasing ewes to animal science students to offering culinary graduates employment, with a signing bonus, the 2023 Business Partners of the Year have each gone above and beyond to put New Jersey students on a path toward career success. 

Congratulations to the 2023 Business Partners of the Year:
