Location: UAF CTC, 604 Barnette Street
The event will recognize the continuous support that local businesses and individuals give to Fairbanks’ community college, partnering in CTC’s mission to build a quality workforce in Alaska and support student success.
The public event on First Friday will have a come-and-go, open gallery format with visuals and partner recognition for each CTC program. Culinary arts faculty and students will prepare food, live, throughout the event for attendees to watch and sample. Remarks and acknowledgments will take place at 5:30 p.m. with Senator Click Bishop as the keynote speaker.
“As a college with a workforce development focus, we succeed in delivering a wide variety of high-quality education to our students with the support of our community,” says CTC Dean Michele Stalder, “The support CTC receives from the community and local industries makes a profound impact. We would like to recognize these supporters as valuable partners and thank them for their efforts and contributions.”
CTC partners provide support in many different forms. Examples of this support include the donation of emergency vehicles for training first responders, the use of professional facilities for health students to complete their clinical experience, the donation of industry standard uniforms for automotive students, and serving on advisory boards to ensure current curriculum meets the needs of employers and students.
