â€œI am a 1976 Grad of the old Guam Voc-Tech High School. In my senior year, I was selected to participate in the NASA station Jr. Tech program (co-op) which changed my life. Although I understand that an upper education will eventually benefit the student better to a higher position in their future, I do not think it is suitable for everyone; thus my support for the “old” high school. Again – college is just not for everyone and a vocational skill set will most definitely benefit the island once again. Go Tradesmen!â€- Tradesmen graduate and Bill 6-31 supporter.
Many graduates of GCCâ€™s Vocational High School have participated in our campaign in support of Bill 6-31 which would mandate that GCC re-open a high school. The bill insists on a complete curriculum including sports. This means that, once again, students will be able to fully participate in the educational experience even if they choose a technical path. Currently 92 supporters have sent letters to senators letting them know Bill 6-31 is good for our families. If you think re-opening GCCâ€™s Vocational High School is a good idea then let your senators know
â€œI graduated from the wonderful tech high school in 1980 and found that learning a trade was so helpful in getting the jobs I have had, especially nowadays where many of the high school students need to learn more about work etiquette and standards. I truly hope the children will have an opportunity to see what kind of school it was to many of us graduates.â€- Tradesmen graduate and Bill 6-31 supporter.
