OAMCTE believes that educating young people in career and technology education is a positive step in providing role models for future generations of youth. As we continue to focus on education, our efforts turn to an important aspect of our organization scholarship. One of the goals of our scholarship program is to provide assistance to deserving minority students who plan to further their education. In so doing, we are offering two (2) Renae Washington-Lorine DuBose Memorial Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each. We believe this is one small way of helping to make this dream a reality for individuals who can become positive role models for others.
