(SWEETWATER) - For three high school seniors, a few hours in Texas State Technical College’s Automotive Technology lab give them each a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Sweetwater High School seniors Ely Barrera and Jacob Rosas, along with Colorado High School senior Richard Martin, plan to continue their journey in college after completing the

TSTC dual enrollment program.

Barrera first will play college football in Kansas before returning to TSTC.

“I get to play college football, but I am planning to return to TSTC because I enjoy this program,” he said. “I know while I am in Kansas I will be working on my teammates’ cars.”

Barrera said he chose to take part in the dual enrollment program for one reason.
