Congratulations to State Technical College of Missouri!
August 27, 2018
In August, two separate studies named State Technical College of Missouri as the third-best two-year trade school in the nation, and when classes began on August 21, student enrollment at the school was the highest ever. PCCA worked with State Tech and PCCA-member Sellenriek Construction to help develop the school's Utility Systems Technician program. The program's first class started this semester.
In Memoriam: Julian Perez Ortega
Julian Perez Ortega, born on March 5, 1974, in the province of Chiriqui in Panama, passed away on Thursday, August 2 at age 44. Julian moved to Wenatchee, Wash., at the age of ten, where he would ultimately graduate from high school and meet the love of his life, whom he would later marry and have three sons with.
Julian was the type of guy who made instant, personal connections with everyone he met. Not only did this mean that he made a lot of close friends, but he was also able to use this trait to move through the ranks of his employer, DCI, where making connections turned out to be a valuable asset. An immigrant who spoke very little English upon moving to the United States, Julian worked hard to excel in everything he did and ended up obtaining a nice piece of the American dream for himself and his family.
