Vettleson Recognized Among Minnesota State Outstanding Educators



During the Minnesota State Board of Trustees Awards for Excellence ceremony on April 20, Northwest Technical College’s Gus Vettleson was recognized as a 2022 Outstanding Educator.

The annual event, held virtually this year, acknowledges and provides system-wide recognition for the consistently superior professional achievements of college and university teaching and service faculty.

The Outstanding Educators of the Year awards recognize excellence in teaching by honoring a limited number of faculty from each Minnesota State campus.

“Vettleson works to both reduce barriers for students and to offer a curriculum that allows students to easily see how classroom concepts will help them on the job and that relates to hands-on instruction in the college’s technical programs,” the board said in the program for the award ceremony.
