Our Vision


In order to successfully complete Vision 2020, TCT will need to accomplish many things. We will have to develop Programs, pioneer initiatives and capture the creativity and passion of those that are committed to our vision of “Inspiring Success Through Life-Changing Learning Experiences.”

Vision 2020 is a vision inspired by those who had the courage to establish the great system of technology centers that we enjoy today; a system that has been recognized as the nation’s best. I am inspired by our students that entrust us to help them realize their dreams.

It is also a vision inspired by the great educators and friends of TCT that are committed to the success of our students.

Tri Country Tech’s plan for the future is well organized, and it allows for a steady progression with noticeable and tangible results. This is a vision that is achievable because it represents who we are, what we do and how we do it. Vision 2020 will guide us to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our customers who are our students, our partners in business and industry, and our stakeholders.

The vision and journey presented in this document will take TCT to the year 2020 in a deliberate process designed for success. I am unequivocally committed to these goals and the future of TCT. As we continue to strive for excellence, our staff remains dedicated to using the best practices and finding innovative ways to inspire the success of our students through life-changing learning experiences. That is the Tri Country Way.

Best Regards,
