Each year, the New Jersey Cooperative Education Association recognizes students who are enrolled in a cooperative education experience. Cooperative education partners technical schools with local industry, allowing a student’s learning to extend beyond the school walls. Students enrolled in cooperative education (School to Work) earn high school credit while working a job in their field of study.
This year, the NJCEA recognized CCTEC student Alexander Grafals who is enrolled in CCTEC’s School to Work program. Alexander has earned high school credit while working a part-time paid position at Rossi Honda. Under the guidance of Rossi Honda’s highly trained mechanics, Alexander has expanded his knowledge of industry standards. His excellent attendance, outstanding grades, and progression of technical skills have earned him the Outstanding Student Award.
