The Breaking Traditions awards, sponsored by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), provides an opportunity for students, career-technical programs, educators, and schools to receive recognition and statewide acknowledgement for their achievements related to nontraditional careers.
“These students and educators exemplify the importance of lifelong learning,” Commissioner of Education Margie Vandeven said. “By choosing nontraditional career programs, they are showing there are many paths to success for Missouri students.”
