A partnership with Habitat for Humanity has helped yield 50 affordable homes for families in our area, while allowing students to work on the newest technology in energy efficient homes and new construction. Fourth-quarter student Ken Lincoln shared, "The opportunity to learn in labs before working on a Habitat for Humanity house is instrumental for our success."
The college's electrical construction program is available for students seeking to earn a degree or certificate in electrical construction for jobs in commercial and residential construction, public utility agencies, and industrial construction and maintenance.
Beth Reichenbach, lead library technician
Lead Library Technician Beth Reichenbach had always loved books. But it wasn't until she received her associate degree from Tacoma Community College and discovered she still didn't feel prepared for a career, that she looked to technical colleges, found inspiration, and earned a technical degree in library science.
Beth has worked at Bates for more than 15 years and she sat down with us recently to share how our students inspire her each day.
