CACTC’s Velino wins adviser-of-year award

Posted 4/9/12

WARWICK – Lori Velino, a guidance counselor at the Cranston Area Career and Technical Center, has won the 2012 SkillsUSA Rhode Island Advisor of the Year Award.

Rep. James R. Langevin, D-R.I., and SkillsUSA RI Executive Director Josh Klemp presented Velino the award on March 30 at Cranston High School West, as part of Langevin’s Rhode Island Skilled Economy or “RISE” tour.

Velino was recognized for her contributions to career and technical education while leading her school’s SkillsUSA programs.

The national SkillsUSA program aims to improve training of high school and college students for technical, skilled and service occupations and will recognize one winner from those honored at the state level as the National Advisor of the Year at a conference in June. •
