“Our community is fortunate to have ACTC in our backyard as a resource for men and women of all ages to learn a skilled trade of their choosing at an affordable cost,” Clark said. “After earning their diplomas ACTC, graduates have a much better opportunity entering the work force to be successful. ACTC graduate success stories are wonderful to hear and a big reason the college is still here in our community. ACTC is a huge employer for our community.”

Those childhood memories were just the beginning of my understanding about what this institution means to Ashland and our neighboring communities. I'm excited to have a role in helping ACTC continue its legacy as a hub for development and growth.”
