The heavy snow and negative temperatures didn't keep us from celebrating the accomplishments of recent graduates. Thursday, January 5, 2017, marked the graduation of five Firefighter Recruit Candidate Academy (RCA) graduates: Sterling Goodrich, Mason Meyers, Iain Murray, Seth Sheely, and Tye Smith. Congratulations to you and we wish you well in your new careers!
Ben Olsen, a certificate seeking student of our Automated Manufacturing & Robotics Program, was awarded the BATC Student of the Year for 2016. Ben Olsen comes to us from the United States Army where he proudly served as an Infantryman for a number of years. After a debilitating injury prevented him from continuing to serve, he decided to further his education through BATC. After trying a number of different industry fields, he finally found his true passion in the Automated Manufacturing and Robotics program. While there are many job options available to Ben, he hopes to one day use his knowledge to continue providing services for the military with his Robotics Training.
