Larry Tripp, who in 2005 earned a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from Argosy University, Sarasota, was recently named the Georgia Association For Career and Technical Education (GACTE) Teacher Of Year. Tripp is a work-based learning coordinator for Dalton Public Schools in Dalton, Georgia.
He received the honor at the GACTE annual conference.
To earn the achievement, Tripp was nominated by division peers—then selected by the GACTE awards committee as the overall state winner. He’ll represent Georgia in the Association for Career & Technical Education Region II competition in September 2018.
With a nearly 25-year career in education, Tripp has served at both Dalton Public Schools and Whitfield County Schools. In addition to his Doctor of Education, he holds an Education Specialist in Educational Leadership and Administration from Lincoln Memorial University and both a Master of Education in Occupational Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Marketing Education from The University of Georgia.
According to an article about his award, Dalton High School Principal Steve Bartoo says Dr. Tripp “has established great relationships with our students. [He] does a wonderful job coaching our WBL students to be great employees.”
