EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR

On May 26, the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council (CBIC) honored the area's most innovative and inspirational entrepreneurs, companies, teachers and students at its sold-out 18th annual awards gala at the Boar's Head. The UVA Research Park proudly presented Monticello High School teacher, Eric Bredder, the CBIC Educator of the Year Award and a $2,500 grant for technology in his classroom. In addition to teaching engineering, computer science, technology, and CTE, Eric manages Monticello High School's makerspace, providing all teachers and students with open access to everything from simple hand tools and traditional machines to advanced manufacturing tools and design software, allowing students to become agents in their own learning process.
