Tyler Jennings 2015 Graduate of CCPS
I graduated from William Campbell High School in 2015.  When I entered my junior year of high school, I realized that I wanted to start working towards a trade so I enrolled in the electrical program offered at Campbell County Technical Center. After the first semester at the CCTC, I realized I had found my trade. The courses offered there allowed me to get certified in safety training as well as earn my CPR card. During my senior year, I continued in the electrical program at the Campbell County Technical Center. After graduating from William Campbell High School, I had to choose where I was going with what I had learned at the CCTC. In August of 2015, I accepted a job with Moore's Electric and began working toward my apprenticeship as an electrician. While working full-time at Moore’s Electric, I attended night classes at the Virginia Technical Institute in Altavista. Because of the courses I had been able to take while still in high school, I was able to start ahead of my fellow classmates at VTI. I graduated from Virginia Technical Institute with my certification as an electrician in less than 18 months.
The Campbell County Technical Center gave me the best opportunity to find a trade that I would enjoy. By attending classes at the vocational center during my junior and senior years of high school, I was able to gain experiences in the electrical field and get classes under my belt to get a head start on a career. Currently, I am a full-time employee at Moore's Electric.
