Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year. As Bob Dylan says: “the times they are a-changin,” and that is definitely true when it comes to Excel TECC! Our brand new Construction Trades building in Willoughby is now up and running. We also have an amazing new spot for our Cosmetology-Mayfield program which is now located in the Alpha Park complex. In addition, our main office for Excel TECC is under construction and should be ready to go sometime this year. I also want to welcome our two new teachers—Stephanie Czech in our Culinary program and Mike Kirchhevel in our Welding program. Despite all of these changes, we will continue to demand and produce excellent programming across our consortium. Other updates include finalizing more CTAG college credits for our programs, revision of tech prep agreements with Lakeland and Tri-C and more opportunities for our middle school students. Please be sure to check the Excel TECC webpage for upcoming events—particularly the annual Fall Festival on October 6th at our Environmental Education Center! Finally, if you are reading this and you have never visited our programs, I encourage you to make plans to attend our bi-annual Grand Tour on October 18th! As always, if you have any questions, my door is always open and I welcome your input and feedback. Make it a great school year Excel TECC!
