Academic Affairs

Architecture and Construction
The Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, & Heating Technology program opens in just a couple of weeks…. The program will be NCCER certified and therefore students will be able to earn the necessary certifications for employment. During the week of October 21, instructor Steve Bagg will be attending an Instructor Certification Training Program (ICTP) as part of the accreditation process. The cost for the program is being funded by a statewide Perkins grant.

She is collecting used “prom” and “homecoming” dresses that she will give to students in need at three high schools in her area. She is dressed for “American pride” day at her high school.
