Get to Know the Central Vermont Career Center Administrative Team!

   Jody Emerson, Director


    Hello, my name is Jody Emerson and I am the Director of the Central Vermont Career Center. I have a deep and personal commitment to technical education as many of my family members, including my son, have experienced success as a direct result of their technical education programming opportunities.

    I grew up in Newbury, VT, and attended Middlebury College earning my BA in History and Secondary Education. I later earned a Master’s in School Leadership at St. Michael’s College and more recently earned a second master’s from the International Institute of Restorative Practices. My first full-time teaching position was at Spaulding High School back in 1999. In 2013, I left teaching to become an Assistant Principal, and later Associate Principal, at U-32 Middle & High School in East Montpelier, VT. I am excited to return to Barre and to serve the students of both communities that have welcomed me. I look forward to working collaboratively with program teachers to continue to promote a positive climate of learning and growth while working in partnership with school leaders throughout Central Vermont to meet the needs of our youth. I am also excited to continue the work of our former Director in moving forward with expanding our program offerings and strengthening community partnerships.

    In my free time, I enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, camping, swimming, and reading.  You may see me biking to work on my e-bike. My son is currently attending UNOH and so I share my home with my two cats!

   Scott Griggs, Assistant Director


     My name is Scott Griggs and I am in my 24th year with Barre Schools and my 21st year at Central Vermont Career Center, where I currently serve as Assistant Director. I believe career technical education is more essential than ever, as students choose to set themselves apart gaining valuable skills, credentials, and postsecondary credit as they complete their high school careers. I am excited for the future of the students we serve at CVCC.

    I live in nearby Orange with my wife Debbie, where we raised our four children, and am a proud grandparent of three with more on the way (they call me G-Pa:) Besides time with family, I enjoy distance running, whether it’s just for fun or training for road races from 5k’s to marathons. To answer the important question of which sports teams to follow, you can’t go wrong with the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins.
