SALT LAKE CITY (February 9,
2016) – LANDESK today announced it has been named the 2016 Business of the Year
by the Utah Association for Career and Technical Education (UACTE).
The UACTE Business of the
Year award celebrates an organization that has demonstrated its commitment to
career and technical education (CTE) through partnerships and continuous
support of CTE professionals in Utah.
“Without the proper exposure
and hands-on experience, students may be unaware of the endless opportunities
that emerge from science, technology, engineering and math,” said Steve Daly,
LANDESK president and CEO. “We are dedicated to helping shape the next
generation of engineers here in Utah and are honored to be recognized by the
UACTE for our efforts.”
Since 2013, LANDESK has
provided all employees around the world with paid time off to contribute to
STEM education in their communities. In Utah, LANDESK employees participate in
a variety of activities, including STEM days at elementary schools, assemblies,
CTE class presentations, STEM Fest, career days and job shadows in many schools
and districts in the state.
In January 2016, several
LANDESK employees volunteered to teach a beginning computer programming course
in the Jordan School District, which helped jumpstart computer science
education across the district. Since the course announcement, enrollment has
grown from eight students in a single location during the winter 2015 semester to
hundreds across the district that have signed up for fall 2016 classes.
LANDESK was recognized at the
UACTE awards ceremony held on Friday, February 5,2015 at Desert
Hills High School in St. George, UT. As the UACTE Business of the Year, LANDESK
has the opportunity to apply for the National Association for Career and
Technical Education Business of the Year Award, presented in April 2016.
