The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) will recognize Eric Weuve, instructor in the Department of Agricultural Sciences at Northwest Missouri State University, with the 2014 ACTE Region III Carl Perkins Community Service Award.

The award, named in honor of the late Kentucky Congressman Carl D. Perkins, is presented to members of ACTE who have made a difference in their communities through leadership programs and activities. Weuve will be recognized at the annual ACTE Awards Banquet in partnership with ACTE’s CareerTech VISION in Nashville, Tenn., on Nov. 19.

“Mr. Weuve’s selection for this award is a testament to the scope and impact of his contributions to career and technical education,” Jordan Kronz, leadership coordinator for the Association for Career and Technical Education, said. “We are proud to include him among the ranks of distinguished individuals and entities from the CTE community whose efforts have enriched the field and advanced the goals of the Association.”

Weuve joined the Northwest faculty this fall. Previously he was an instructor and program chair at Iowa Western Community College, an agricultural educator at Northwest Technical School in Maryville and an agricultural educator at South Holt High School in Oregon, Mo. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Northwest.

While teaching courses at Iowa Western, Weuve maintained his chair duties, leadership obligations to the Association of Agricultural Educators and served multiple roles in the community. He coordinated service projects such as the Phi Theta Kappa book drive, assisted with highway cleanup efforts and helped implement a hoop house project for the Charles Lakin Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa, to aid its human services mission.
