“CV-TEC has been the recipient of both state and national recognition for its cutting-edge approaches for providing high-quality career- and technical-education programs under Dr. Mack’s leadership.
“Dr. Mack has truly been an asset to the organization.”
North Country Chamber of Commerce President Garry Douglas said that while BOCES operations everywhere play an important role in vocational education and job training, CV-TEC has gone well beyond the norm under Mack’s leadership. It has become a full strategic partner with the chamber and others in meeting the changing needs of the area’s employers and economy, he said by email.
“He has been a key part of our economic-development team and can be immensely proud of his role in enhancing the lives of thousands of students through the years and enabling the attraction and creation of new jobs,” he said.
Mack said the school is accepting applications for his job until May 15. Applicants will then be screened by a committee that will also include people from the local business community.
He plans to remain in the area, he said, spending more time with his wife, Andrea, their children and four grandchildren and also working as a consultant.
