As part of National Career Development Month, the Idaho Department of Labor is recognizing six Idahoans for their contributions to increasing awareness about the importance of career development among both students and adults in our state. The State Department of Education is proud to announce that one of our very own, Carina Davio, is the recipient of one of these Leadership in Career Development awards.

Carina is being recognized for her part in creating career and college readiness cultures in Idaho's schools. She is the GEAR UP Idaho Program Director here at the State Department of Education.

GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is a national discretionary grant program started in 1999. The program is designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. National GEAR UP provides six-year grants to states and partnerships to provide services at high-poverty middle and high schools.

The Leadership in Career Development awards are annually sponsored by the Idaho Career Information System division at the Idaho Department of Labor. Additional details on these awards and on this year’s recipients are available at

Thanks, Carina, for your hard work and congratulations on your award!
