The National Council for Workforce Education recognized Steve Long, Associate Vice Chancellor for Workforce Solutions at St. Louis Community College for his outstanding, extraordinary service by presenting him with the John F. Grede Board Service Award at their awards luncheon on October 17 during their annual conference.

The John F. Grede Board Service Award is presented to past or current members of the NCWE Board of Directors who have given outstanding, extraordinary service to the National Council for Workforce Education. This award is named after NCWE’s first president, Dr. John F. Grede, who served during 1975-76. Dr. Grede conceived the idea to establish the Council for Occupational Education during the mid-1970’s when the AACJC Board of Directors adopted the concept of affiliated councils. His dedication and leadership to the Council serves as the inspiration and standard of all who receive this award.
