“Education without application leads to frustration. West-MEC and CTE encourages and provides a purpose and reason for gaining knowledge. The venue for hands on exploration and development puts the student in charge of their success with a hittable target. I believe this is why students engage so quickly into their own education and career choice. This is why I am at West-MEC.”

“West-MEC is an awesome place to work, providing a conducive learning environment. Students expand their knowledge through hands-on learning while using their minds, which is what construction is about. Building on a good foundation is the start of a sound structure.”
