Tech School Superintendent Tours Oliver Wolcott

May 24, 2018

I joined Principal Richard Shellman in welcoming the new Superintendent of the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) to Oliver Wolcott Technical High School for a tour.

Superintendent Jeffrey Wihbey was appointed by Connecticut State Department of Education Commissioner Dianna Wentzell to head CTECS in January, after previously serving as Interim Superintendent. CTECS includes all of Connecticut’s technical high schools.

It was a pleasure to join Superintendent Wihbey for a tour showcasing everything Oliver Wolcott offers our students. It’s important that the state’s educational leaders create a personal connection with the schools they oversee. As a technical high school, Oliver Wolcott plays an important role in the school to workforce pipeline by preparing students for opportunities in growing industries such as manufacturing.
