Anedda Trautman
ALBANY — Anedda Trautman, high school principal of the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center (NCTEC) in Orleans/Niagara BOCES, has been selected as the 2015 recipient of the James E. Allen Award by the School Administrators Association of New York State (SAANYS).

James E. Allen, a pillar of educational leadership who served as commissioner of education in New York State, was known for his strong support of secondary school administrators. This award is given annually to a SAANYS member who is a secondary school administrator, supervisor, or coordinator who has given significant contributions to education and leadership at the secondary school level and service to the community and professional organizations including SAANYS.

A long time educator, Trautman has been affiliated with the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center since 2001, first as an instructor, then as assistant principal, and ultimately as principal since 2011. Well-known as an innovative and forward thinking leader, Trautman has worked diligently to bring new ideas and initiatives to the school, increasing academic rigor and career readiness. In particular she has developed partnerships and collaborations with local industry leaders through the Tech Centers that Work program, the Craft Advisory Committee, as well as an annual "bug out" contest where automotive students work to debug a car within a certain time frame, this is held in conjunction with the Niagara Frontier Automobile Dealers Association at the Buffalo Auto Show. Additionally, she has hosted a "thank you reception" at the school for industry advisory committee members, showcasing the students' work and providing an opportunity for students to receive internships and summer employment opportunities.

As noted by colleague Jennifer Braun, "Mrs. Trautman's vision for the future of our school is limitless. She has introduced and brought to fruition new ideas and programs for our students and the 13 component districts that we serve... Her student-centered approach to learning and insistence upon academic rigor are just two of the many components contributing to the success at NCTEC. She includes students, parents/guardians, faculty, constituent school districts, and industry into her vision for NCTEC, which are critical to the creation of a true 21st century learning community."

Clark J. Godshall, district superintendent, said "Her efforts have contributed to this BOCES' career and technical education programs and our enrollment being the third largest amongst the other 37 BOCES in New York State. Her tireless efforts and positive role modeling have strengthened our relationship with the 13 component districts and continue to distinguish her leadership locally and across New York State."

Trautman received her bachelors, masters, and advanced certification from the State University of New York at Buffalo – Buffalo State College.

Trautman will be honored for her accomplishments at an awards ceremony on May 8 at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Albany, New York.
