Hamilton is one of five finalists vying for the national title of 2013 Outstanding Career and Technical Educator, which recognizes career and technical educators, other than full-time teachers, who have provided significant contributions to professional associations and career and technical education (CTE) programs for youth and/or adults in their fields, communities and/or states.

Hamilton is regarded as a leader and facilitator of the next generation. Innovation has been Hamilton’s leadership style in various initiatives, having served in an adjunct role teaching prospective CTE educators for the last 14 years. Recently, Hamilton spearheaded a project that developed two postsecondary courses (one in comprehensive CTE programs and another in research and development in CTE), that students take toward their CTE major.

The winner will be announced at the Awards Banquet, a dinner and award presentation recognizing the best CTE educators in the country, which will take place on Wednesday evening, November 28 at CareerTech VISION 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia.
