Veteran enjoys tempo of TSTC’s Welding Technology program

U.S. Military veteran Dylon Moreno enjoys the pace of his Welding

Technology classes at Texas State Technical College.

Moreno, who served in the Marine Corps for four years, said having welding experience before enrolling at TSTC paid off with instructors.

“We can go at our own pace. If you know what you are doing, the instructors will turn you loose on projects,” he said. “For the students who need some help, the instructors are there to answer questions.”

Fellow classmates are also on hand to help each other, another aspect that Moreno likes about his time in the lab.

“We like to talk to each other in the lab and make sure we know what we are doing,” he said.

Moreno, who is pursuing an associate degree, said he knew that TSTC would be a good place to train for a career after the military. Originally from Odessa, Moreno moved to Brownwood before enlisting in the Marine Corps. While living in Brownwood, he heard what TSTC had to offer.

“I have always heard about TSTC and the programs they offer,” he said. “I knew it would be a good place to receive an education.”
