A spotlight will be cast on Canyons Technical Education Center's stellar programs during a 4 to 8 p.m. open house on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014.
Students of all ages and their parents and guardians are invited to the free event at the campus, 825 E. 9085 South. Visitors will be treated to tours throughout the technical center, said CTEC Principal Ken Spurlock.
“I love showing off the programs and what we have to offer the students,” Spurlock said. “I really believe in what we do, and it’s wonderful to see our students grow and change.”
Spurlock said the open house has been designed so that parents and students can see the possibilities of becoming trained in high-wage, high-skill fields.
“This is the first step in the door for many of our students who want to attend college,” he said. “We help put them on that path, and it helps parents to see that our students are becoming ready for that next step.”
To spark interest and engage prospective students, CTEC faculty and current students have planned demonstrations of the school’s programs. Career and Technical Education coordinators also will be on hand to answer questions.
Spurlock says CTEC, which partners with Salt Lake Community College, Utah Valley University and Utah State University-Eastern to provide college credit to successful students, has changed with the times. Technology is a focus of many programs.
Even in a traditionally blue-collar field as building construction, students become well versed in various computer programs. “Students learn that they need to be computer literate to understand their jobs completely,” he said.
