"We hire thousands of people per year and we are anxious to review the CTE standards to give educators and students a clearer understanding of the skills we are looking for. The fact is, the better prepared an employee is when we make a hiring decision, the more positive the impact on our bottom line and the rest of the economy." - Andrew K. Smith, CEO/Co-Founder Four Foods Group Holdings & Utah Entrepreneur of the Year
"We know there are students who have already earned certifications that make them attractive to employers. A strong connection between workforce development and education will benefit us all and grow our state's economy." - Jon Pierpont, Workforce Services Executive Director
