Texas State Technical College recently celebrated the groundbreaking of two new facilities and renovation of one existing building at the Harlingen campus,
for which Vaughn serves as construction manager-at-risk. These buildings will help bolster the college system’s ability to provide educational support and outreach to the Rio Grande Valley region.
The Automotive Technology and Diesel Equipment Technology programs will share nearly 50,000 SF in one of the two new buildings. In contrast, the Electrical Lineworker and Management Technology program will get a new 12,000 SF building. A renovated facility will house the Biomedical Equipment Technology, Plumbing and Pipefitting Technology, and Wind Energy Technology programs.
TSTC chancellor and CEO Mike Reeser, other TSTC leaders, industry partners, and several area and regional government officials attended the event.
Cledia Hernandez, TSTC’s vice chancellor of external relations in Harlingen, gave remarks at the ceremony. “The new training facilities will be cutting-edge and provide citizens of the Rio Grande Valley with the skills and experience they
need to enter and thrive in the Texas workforce,” she said.
We look forward to sharing more information as construction progresses. The project is slated to reach substantial completion in June 2025.
