Kevin Vick, former Vice President of the Colorado Education Association (CEA), has officially started his new role as president. His election marks a new chapter for CEA, which continues to advocate for the rights of students and educators throughout all four corners of the state.

Vick brings a wealth of experience and a deep commitment to education to his new role. With over two decades of experience in the field of education, primarily as a high school social studies teacher, Vick has demonstrated unwavering dedication to ensuring that every student in Colorado has access to quality education. Additionally, Vick served for six years as president of the Colorado Springs Education Association, where he advocated for better working conditions for his fellow educators. His leadership as Vice President of the CEA has been marked by significant achievements in securing better wages, fairer workplace conditions and a crucial first step towards a fully-funded education system in Colorado.

“I am deeply honored to start my first term as President of the Colorado Education Association. This opportunity fills me with immense pride and a profound sense of responsibility,” said Kevin Vick, an educator with 20+ years of experience and president of CEA. “I look forward to continuing our efforts to improve the learning conditions for all students in Colorado, ensuring they have the resources and support they need to succeed.

“My commitment to advocating for the rights of educators remains resolute, as I believe that empowering and supporting our educators is crucial to the success of our education system. Additionally, I am dedicated to championing public education across Colorado, working tirelessly to promote policies that create an environment where every student can thrive, and every educator is respected and valued.”

As President, Vick aims to build on this foundation, focusing on strategies to address the challenges facing educators and students in the current educational landscape. Vick’s vision for the future is one where educators’ voices are at the forefront of the conversation about education, where partnership and collaboration flow freely, where there is sustainable long-term funding for public education in Colorado, and where a career in education is not a vow of poverty, but one of prosperity.
