CTC Alumni Success Stories

Kara Horn didn't plan to attend CTC until she visited as part of her home school's Career Exploration Days. On a whim she visited the Applied Engineering & Manufacturing program lab where she became extremely interested in all of the different experiences the program offered.

Intrigued by dentistry as a young child Jamie was excited to attend CTC's Dental Assisting program and pursue a career in the field. CTC not only helped fuel her passion for dentistry, but also presented invaluable opportunities to network and make connections in the industry. 

Cristian Balcazar attended CTC as a homeschooled student. While at CTC he attended the Electrical Trades program and was very involved in SkillsUSA. The skills Cristian learned at CTC have helped him throughout his career, which has included the construction, education, and restaurant industries.
