The Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) Division is a unit of Chattanooga State, a Tennessee Board of Regents Institution serving more than 2,300 students annually. The school was founded in 1969 as the Chattanooga Area Vocational Technical School. On July 1, 1981 the AVTS became a part of Chattanooga State. In 1996 the Tennessee Board of Regents renamed the AVTS to the Tennessee College of Applied Technology in keeping with their updated role as the leading edge technical/adult education/vocational training centers in the state of Tennessee.
The Tennessee Technology Center Division was well represented last week at the 2013 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, Missouri. Our students competed in 14 events and earned one gold, one silver and two bronze medals. In addition, competitors in eight other events finished in the top 15. Please join me in congratulating all of the competitors, advisors and national voting delegates for their success in Kansas City.
