Higher education is gained each and every day at the Caldwell County Area Technology Center by students from Caldwell and surrounding counties. As one ATC teacher pointed out at a recent meeting of area educators, “what we offer here can prepare an 18- or 19-year-old to go out and start a job making $50,000 a year.” Gone are the days of being “a trade school.” “We haven’t been a trade school or trade center since the 1950s,” said Caldwell County ATC Principal Ruth Gray. “We are a technology center, and students are number one here. “Some of the smartest students in your school districts come here, and they have to hold high grades to remain here.”
