Educator earns national research award


The Engineering and Technology Education Division (eTED) of the Association for Career and Technical Education has selected a Fayette County engineering and technology teacher as the 2015 eTED Outstanding Research award winner.

Larry Singleton of McIntosh High was selected by a review panel to receive the award for his paper, “Pairing Students in CAD Training to Improve Spatial Visualization Ability.”

Each year eTED recognizes the top two non-funded outstanding research papers at the professional level related to grades K-12, and/or the university/college level, with one being selected as the overall top winner. The recipient receives a plaque and an award of  $500 provided by the research committee.

Singleton will receive the award in November during the Association for Career and Technical Education VISION conference in New Orleans.
