Flint Hills Technical College has been in record territory with enrollment for years, and its graduation numbers are also setting records.
Over 300 students received degrees at some level during commencement activities at White Auditorium on Saturday. TRAC-7 Operations Manager Seth Carter had the commencement speech duties. He anticipates more record graduation numbers to come.
Carter says the graduates are ready for the work world in part because of the college's training approach and in part because of the knowledge base of the instructors on staff. Flint Hills Technical College also has made it a priority to work with different businesses across eastern Kansas to determine what they need and then hone its coursework in different fields as a result.
