Two Utica Community Schools seniors have been honored as students of the year by the Macomb County Career Technical Education Administrators Association.

Anthony Salazar, of Utica High School, and Angel Sanders, of Stevenson High School, were honored at the 27th annual Career Technical Education awards breakfast February 1.

A school valedictorian, Salazar plans to attend Oakland University to pursue a career in physical therapy.

“Anyone who has contact with Anthony is amazed by his determination, dedication and maturity,” his nomination reads.

His CTE activities include School-To-Work at Beaumont Hospital and HOSA: Future Health Professionals

A student in Stevenson’s Medical Science Program, Sanders will be attending Oakland University to pursue a career in Health Sciences.

“Angel continues to set and achieve new goals, break stereotypes and succeeds at whatever she pursues,” her nomination reads.

Sanders earned first place honors in the regional and state HOSA competitions and earned fourth best at the international competition.

In addition to honoring the two UCS students, the county CTE organization also honored New Link Diamond and Granite as a UCS Business/Industry partner.  Owner John Ferrozzo has sponsored Co-op interns for more than 25 years.

“John deserves the recognition of this award for the years he has spent teaching and training our interns,” the nomination reads.
