A few Red Deer educators are among the 30 being recognized by Skills Canada Alberta.

In celebration of its 30-year relationship with Alberta’s teachers and instructors, Skills Canada Alberta announced the winners of its “Sturdy 30” award Monday.

The Study 30 award recognizes teachers and instructors who go above and beyond to prepare their students for the world of work that awaits them in trade and technology areas, according to the nonprofit provincial organization.

Red Deer Polytechnic’s Chris McCloskey, as well as Tracey Millar and Jeff Lerouge from École Secondaire Notre Dame High School, were among those recognized.

“Alberta’s teachers and instructors are crucial to the success of our future workforce. They provide the expertise and support students need to pursue their goals,” Skills Canada Alberta said in a release.

“For 30 years Skills Canada Alberta has been fortunate to work with the most passionate and dedicated teachers in the province, and we look forward to continuing to work collaboratively in providing platforms for exploration and skill development to Alberta’s youth.”

The Sturdy 30 are being recognized with social media profiles running until the end of July and will receive a physical award to display their achievement.
