Our Condolences

As many of you already know, it is with deep sadness that we share that our former CCCAOE Executive Director,

Elizabeth Wallner

passed away on Tuesday, July 18, concluding her 6-year fight with cancer.  Her son, Nathaniel, reported she passed away surrounded by many that she loved and at peace.

We were privileged to have such an amazing individual, who didn't know the meaning of selfish, cross our many paths. She not only crossed our path with CCCAOE, she left a legacy throughout the state as an advocate for equity, data integrity, and diversity. 

She was a philanthropist, a leader with the Joint Special Populations Advisory Committee (JSPAC), a supporter for the Vocational Education Research & Accountability Technical Advisory Committee (VERATAC), and passionate educator for career and technical education. 

She is etched in our hearts and minds, and will be missed.
