April Monthly Meeting Review

Thank you for all of the members who attended our monthly meeting.  We surpassed our goal of our monthly meeting attendance with 51 people!!!! It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Bridging Communities Regional Career & Technical Center (BCRCTC).  Our members were greeted with delicious food prepared by the Culinary Arts Department.  After networking and enjoying some phenomenal food, our meeting started.

Our speaker, Dr. Stephen Trexler, director of BCRCTC provided a wonderful description about all seven programs within the school.  He shared the success of the Senior Service Project (building a 3500 watt solar-powered emergency electrical generator) by the three-person team from the Engineering & Technology Program.  He talked about the accomplishments from the students who participated in Local and State wide competitions.  He talked about the two-year dual enrollment program which provides students with the opportunity to earn 6 high school credits and 32 college credits from Reynolds Community College for their Diesel Technology Department—just to name a few points.  Seven Departments of BCRCTC: Nurse Aide, Criminal JusticePre-Engineering TechnologyWeb Design & Coding, Culinary Arts, HVACR, Diesel Technology

Dr. Trexler invited all attendees to tour each classroom and ask questions of the Instructors and students so we could all learn more about each department.  It was amazing!!!  If you need an employee or intern for your business, please contact BCRCTC……Want to schedule your own personal tour of the school, please contact their office at 804.966.8575.
