AWC's Dhawan joins STEDY governing board

AWC's Dhawan joins STEDY governing board

Since 2008, Southwest Technical Education District of Yuma (STEDY) has offered career and technical education – also known as CTE – opportunities to high school students across Yuma County in order to condition these emerging leaders of society for college and/or career readiness.

Joining the district’s efforts and strengthening its preexisting partnership with Arizona Western College is Reetika Dhawan, the college’s associate vice president of workforce development and career and technical education and STEDY’s newest governing board member.

Dhawan was recently appointed by Yuma County Superintendent Tom Tyree to occupy a vacant seat on the board for a two-year term, until the next general election in 2022.

“Her knowledge of career and technical education was outstanding, and we felt that she would really add a lot to their board,” said Tyree. “She’s been a really great partner with the high school district and the elementary districts as the dean of career and technical education for the college. It’s one thing to have that knowledge, and that’s very important, but she has a real can-do attitude. When something needs to be done, she steps up and gets it done.”

Dhawan moved to the United States in 2007, when she began teaching high school physics and math in Parker Unified School District.

In 2008, she took a part-time position at AWC teaching math, physics and engineering before transitioning to full-time in 2010, serving as the department chair for math and engineering in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, she was elevated to dean of career and technical education.
