(Sweetwater)- Sweetwater High School students who have been accepted to TSTC will decorate ceiling tiles in the name of their future college Friday at 9:30 a.m. TSTC will provide paint, pennants and other materials the students can use in decorating their tiles. A recruiting representative and TSTC in West Texas Provost Eliska Smith will be present at the gathering.
This will be the first year that students attending TSTC will decorate tiles. Provost Smith said she wanted to help the students take part in the high school’s long-time tradition, partially, to send a message.
“Their choice of attending Texas State Technical College should be just as celebrated as any other college choice,” said Smith. “We may be the ‘hometown college,’ but students should proudly celebrate the fact that they will be getting a great college education for jobs that are highly technical and in-demand. Their choice will lead them to great-paying careers, and with far less debt, creating a stronger foundation for their future.”
TSTC hopes to bring more opportunities to the Sweetwater area.
“With our dual credit partnership with Sweetwater High School and their upcoming expansion of career and technical education facilities pending approval of the bond, we look forward to having more and more students from SISD entering TSTC career programs having already earned college credit,” added Smith.
TSTC’s newly enrolled students will pursue degrees in Automotive Technology, Nursing, Welding and Emergency Medical Services.
