Contreras along with other Tech Prep Board members are committed to Tech Prep’s work and continue to support Tech Prep’s vision and mission which is to form working regional and state partnerships that leverage regional resources to facilitate college-and-career-focused learning opportunities for students stressing practical problem-solving and critical thinking to achieve a higher level of competence in the workforce. Tech Prep and its partners are working together to provide solutions to the labor market’s demand.
On December 12, 2011, Sergio Contreras, External Affairs Regional Director for AT&T, presented a $2,000 check to Pat Bubb, Executive Director of Tech Prep of the RGV and to Rene Capistran, President of Tech Prep Board, to support Tech Prep’s initiatives and programs. Tech Prep is a public-private consortium which prepares high school and college students for entering well-paid, in-demand career fields ranging from healthcare and engineering to finance and computer systems.
“AT&T supports Tech Prep; Tech Prep delivers leadership skills training and engages the community to support workforce readiness activities in the South Texas Region,” Contreras said. Contreras, who serves on the Tech Prep Executive Board, believes in Tech Prep's initiatives. According to Contreras, “Tech Prep benefits the Rio Grande Valley by encouraging business professionals and community leaders to enhance and support a skilled workforce.”
