Sam Rogers, Candidate
Born and reared in Monticello, Utah, I participated and lettered in three sports. I attended USU on a wrestling scholarship, where I studied Business and Marketing. My work experience is in business management where, for 25 plus years, I managed businesses for LLP’s and sole proprietorships, mostly in the carwash industry. I have worked in management for two national companies; Gallenkamp Shoes and Sherwin-Williams. I received my Master of Secondary Education from the University of Phoenix in 2007 and began teaching Business and Marketing that fall at Riverton High School. Teaching is the greatest “job” I have ever attempted. While at Riverton, I have coached football and wrestling, been DECA Assistant Advisor and am currently DECA Advisor. I served on the MEG board from the summer of 2008, serving as president-elect from 2011-2013 and as president from 2013, until spring 2016. I have served on the UACTE board, as both president-elect and president of the Marketing Division. If elected, I will continue to work tirelessly for the benefit and support of teachers and students in CTE. Thank you all for your time and effort in the service of your students.

Steven Strong, Candidate
I am honored to be running for President of UACTE. I am a believer in CTE. I benefitting from CTE classes and CTSOs when I was a student in high school. And I am still benefitting from it today. I am currently in my seventh year of teaching. My first three years were spent teaching marketing classes at Bingham High School in the Jordan School District. Over the last four years I have taught Computer Technology, College and Career Awareness, and Keyboarding at Canyon View Jr. High in Alpine School District. Before teaching, I spent ten years in industry. I am grateful to have been part of the private and public sector. This gives me a unique perspective of the skills need for student success. As president I hope to continue the excellence that is UACTE and influence our organization in a positive way.
