The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) has selected two members of our team, Tiffanie Rosier and Aleksander Marthinussen for the distinct honor of being named as 2021 Fellows for the Post-Secondary Leadership Success Program (PLSP). Only 20 Fellows were selected NATIONWIDE, so to have two from the same program at the same college is quite an achievement!
The vision for the PLSP-ECMC Foundation Fellowship is to help develop the leadership skills of current and emerging postsecondary Career and Technical Education (CTE) professionals with an emphasis on addressing the needs of under-served populations.
The Fellows will be exposed to such topics as the future of CTE; building stronger alliances with secondary CTE and dual credit; building strong business-education partnerships and creating high quality work-based learning opportunities for students as well as interaction with leaders from governmental education agencies across the US.
Tiffanie serves as a STEM Education Coordinator for NOVA SySTEMic. Her role is to facilitate and coordinate STEM integration and Career Exploration activities at all grade levels from K-12 to Community College in various in person and now virtual formats. Tiffanie also works to develop relationships with higher education and business partners to coordinate activities for student’s academic, career and professional development. Tiffanie coordinates regularly scheduled STEM/CTE Workshops for students and potential students on topics related to career and professional development activities, along with information about academic programs at NOVA.
Aleksander holds a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from Narvik University College in Norway, where he was born and raised. Before relocating to the U.S. in 2008, he worked for the European Space Agency, Norwegian Space Center and Andoya Space with student outreach and teacher professional development in STEM. Aleksander is the Program Manager for NOVA SySTEMic, the College’s STEM Outreach Program. He provides leadership and coordination of STEM activities in the community such as STEM summer camps, STEM expos, STEM workshops and other outreach activities.
