Canyons Technical Education Center: Cody Henrichsen

Cody Henrichsen is an innovative instructor and dynamic leader at Canyons Technical Education Center who is constantly investigating ways to make his students' skills relevant in the global marketplace. For example, one of his classes focuses on writing apps for Android and Apple iPhones. As part of the center's outreach efforts, he's working with District schools and industry professionals in developing a summer programming workshop for girls. This year, he wrote three grants for this program — including a Qwest Foundation equipment grant and another pending from Google. Henrichsen brought AP testing to the education center and has been selected as an AP Table Leader by the College Board. While many people are taking a break for the summer months, he will be teaching a summer course again for Utah State Office of Education. Henrichsen was alsochosen this year as the CTEC Shining Star.
