Jose Villalobos-Technology Practicum student
Jose is a Senior here at CPHS and our first Technology Practicum Student. He also qualified for a job through Texas Workforce Commission and is getting paid to work at school in our Technology Department here at CPISD. He has been working hard helping out our school. He said, "Something I have learned from Frank and Hunter is that even though a million things are coming your way there's always time to help everyone. And it was more challenging than I anticipated but Frank and Hunter are helping me every step of the way."
When he graduates he would like to attend Cameron University in Lawton, OK.
My goals after graduating IT school are to hopefully be employed at some company as an IT technician. Fun Fact about myself is that i have been attending Center Point ISD since Pre-k!
