Student Quotes:

"I just wanted to email you to let you know thta I got a job working with HP in Pontiac. I am attending Baker College and plan to graduate with my associates this spring but plan to go on for a bachelors part time. Baker did recognize that I had A+ Certification and I didn't have to take two classes which sped things up a bit and saved me some money so thank you for that. I'm not sure where I would be if I didn't go to Career Tech.  Also, if I'm around when class is in session I would like to stop by and maybe talk to your students."
– Former Electrical/Computer Technologies Student Jeff Field
