UTC Celebrates 58 Years of Home Grown Staff Talent
Defining success for UTC graduates usually takes us out in the community where we see our graduates contributing to the many post-secondary academic institutions and businesses both in and out of Maine. However, to observe some of our successful alumni one only has to walk down the hall or up the stairs at UTC. Nothing is more satisfying to a school than to see graduates return to share their skills and abilities as employees at their technical school alma mater. UTC is fortunate to have six such individuals.
