(ABILENE, Texas) – Texas State Technical College hosted over 30 high school counselors and career and technical education (CTE) instructors from across West Texas on Friday at the 2019 Counselor Update.

The event served as an opportunity for representatives from various school districts to learn about the programs and services that TSTC offers students.

“The update is a chance to get everyone up to speed about new programs, program changes, career opportunities awaiting these students, and provide information on all the exciting things we have to offer their students,” Chris Johnson, TSTC lead recruiter for West Texas, said.

Guests toured programs offered at the aviation maintenance hangar and new Industrial Technology Center.

“This conference really opened up our eyes to the different opportunities available to these kids and just reaffirmed the placement rate here. I am really excited to talk to some students about the Industrial Systems program, and I am wanting to plan a tour with a group of students,” Kelly Tuggle, counselor for Lipan High School, said.
