Trinity Hughes|Sundt Completes Construction of Wichita Falls ISD Career and Technical Education Center
WICHITA FALLS, TX Trinity Hughes|Sundt, A Joint Venture, recently completed construction of a new Career and Technical Education Center for the Wichita Falls Independent School District.
The center features spaces for students to explore a variety of career paths, including a TV studio, an auto-tech shop, construction lab, medical lab and more. Modern educational features include a "learning stair" instead of a traditional auditorium. Students sit on stairs instead of at desks and watch presentations projected on the wall.
The district celebrated the new center with the community at a ribbon-cutting event. District Superintendent Michael Kuhrt cut the ribbon for the 123,000-square-foot facility in front of a crowd of city officials, district staff and project team members. Attendees took guided tours of the learning spaces after the ceremony.
"We were focused on delivering this project to the district, teachers and students in time for the new school year," said Trinity Hughes|Sundt Project Manager David Musch. "The Career and Technical Education Center is an exciting opportunity for high school students in our community to explore their future careers."
Trinity Hughes|Sundt, A Joint Venture, started work on the building in mid-2016. The center is preparing WFISD's high-schoolers for direct entry into careers or college. Students are receiving advanced skills, certification, college credits and the ability to explore their futures.
