Thank you, Tooele! Words cannot begin to express my sincere appreciation for all of the support, assistance and kindness demonstrated to me and Tooele Technical College (formerly Tooele Applied Technology College) since we established in 2009.
As I prepare for retirement at the end of the year, I find myself reflecting on all those who helped establish, construct and grow our institution. Much of what we are today is due to many government agencies, education partners, employers and community organizations including: Grantsville City, Tooele City, Tooele Economic Development, Toole County Commission, local and state legislators, Tooele County School District, TCSD Foundation, Utah State University, Tooele County Chamber of Commerce, Department of Workforce Services, Deseret Industries, Vocation Rehabilitation, All-Tech Electric, Beehive Broadband, Cargill, Carlisle SynTec, Crete Carrier, Cygnus Labs, Detroit Remanufacturing, EnergySolutions, Food for Thought, Freightliner, Hughes General Contractor, Method Studio Inc., Mountain West Medical Center, Peterson Industrial Depot, Phillips Heavy Equipment, Rio Tinto – Kennecott, Rocky Mountain Care, Rocky Mountain Power, SME Steel, Steadman’s, Tooele Transcript Bulletin, Utah Fabrication, Walmart Logistics, Warner Truck Center, Zion’s Bank, US Magnesium, Utah Manufacturers Association, Tooele Kiwanis Club and Tooele Rotary Club.
Additionally, I would like to thank our wonderful Board of Directors (past and present) for their dedicated leadership and expert guidance; Employer Advisory Committee members for their time and expertise to ensure programs are current with industry; amazing faculty for their ability to successfully train and motivate students; caring and talented staff who are determined to meet the needs of all who enter our beautiful facility; and most importantly, the students for their commitment and persistence to overcome obstacles and complete programs to better their lives.
Please know that the institution is prepared and poised to meet future workforce and economic development needs of this incredible community. Thanks for the opportunity, trust, memorable experiences and delightful journey.
