Gifts, grants, tuition and taxpayer money results in fantastic CTEC–Unfortnately, about 1/3 high school students in County don’t have access to the facility
Working closely with the West County High School Mountain Institute Joint Technical Education District (JTED), Yavapai College has created a state-of-the-art Career and Technical Education Center at the Prescott airport. The total investment over the past nine years including gifts, contributions, tuition, and taxpayer revenue is close to $20 million dollars. Recently, the College put several million into completely remodeling the Center.
Unfortunately, high school students from the East side of the County (Verde Valley) do not have access to this wonderful facility. Only high school students on the West side of the County.
President Penelope Wills’ indicated to the Clarkdale town council that if the Verde Valley wanted a similar facility on a smaller scale, it would have to do so on its own. Incredible!
The following video provides a three minute snapshot of a portion of the CTEC remodeling projects that are just now being completed along with some of the new state-of-the-art machinery.
