Texas State Technical College has awarded scholarships to 39 high school students from ATEMS, Blanket, Breckenridge, Colorado City, Cisco, Early, Gorman, Graford, Hamlin, Jim Ned, Loraine, Roscoe and Sweetwater. The scholarship recipients have all completed a Marketable Skills Award (MSA) through dual credit with TSTC in Digital Media, Health Information, Computer Programming, Software and Business Accounting, Computer-Aided Drafting or Welding. The college hopes the scholarship will enable the students to continue their education to an associate degree. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, 73% of jobs require an Associate’s Degree or less, while only 27% require a Bachelor’s degree or more.
Dual Credit classes offer an excellent way for high school students to get a jump on their career path and save money on college. TSTC offers dual credit classes in Business Accounting, Allied Health, Automotive, Aviation, Computer-Aided Drafting, Auto Collision Repair, Culinary Arts, Diesel, Digital Media, Computer Networking, Computer Programming, Software Publishing, Pipe Welding, Welding and Wind Energy.
