Shelby Co. Area Technology Center
A Note From Our Principal
Greetings and Happy Holidays!
We are closing in on the half way point on what has been a great school year. We
have been focusing on recruiting future students and preparing our current
students to be Career Ready. We have also been working with architects
during the design process of our schools expansion and renovation.
The expansion and renovation project at the Shelby Co. ATC will begin in the
spring of 2016. With the expansion of the physical space, we are also expanding
our programs with the addition of diesel and welding. The building and new programs
should be ready to go in the fall of 2017. (Plans will follow in the next newsletter.)
We are also in the process of increasing our school spirit and school pride. During
the spring semester, we will be choosing a school mascot and exploring a name
change for our school. We have recently completed voting on school colors and
our students chose maroon and gray. We are very excited about all the great
things taking place at our school.
In closing, thanks to everyone for a great first half of the year. The staff at the
Shelby Co. ATC would like to wish everyone a joyous Holiday that is enjoyed with
family and friends. We thank you for your support and look forward to working
with you in the future as we continue to strive for excellence and community for
- Steve Coleman, Principal
Tuesday, December 15th was HOSA's "Unite to Serve" event. Local children were treated to a visit from Santa at the Area Technology Center. Each child was sent home with a free book. Refreshments were provided. Chapter members also stayed after school to tie blankets which will be donated to Hands of Hope.
Hour of Code
Shelby County Area Technology Center (ATC) students in the Information Technology School participated as students and tutors, during the Hour of Code weeklong event. The high school students squeezed in time to participate as students on Friday, December 4th. Our students supported the week long “Code for an Hour” events, hosted at Wright elementary for their students.
