                                       President's Welcome

As President of York Technical College, I want to welcome you to our campus and our region. Our College serves, in all, the suburban and rural counties of York, Chester, and Lancaster. As you will see, we also have the unique opportunity to partner with our neighboring metropolitan area, as we strive to meet the educational and workforce needs of the region and states of both North and South Carolina.

During the past five years, as I have served as president of York Technical College, I have developed a new appreciation for the importance of Centers like yours in representing and assisting your respective colleges in meeting their mission. Further, as a former Director of an ATC and Regional Coordinator for several years with NCATC, I fully understand the importance of what you do for economic development.
Through our partnership with companies, such as Okuma America Corporation, we have developed the Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CAM) which allows both credit and noncredit students to work on the latest advances in machine tool technology available. Currently, we are expanding the CAM center to include the latest in robotics and advanced manufacturing capabilities, in order to further expand our educational opportunities in this area.

It is my expectation that you will find our faculty and staff informative and engaging as we welcome the opportunity to showcase our College. It is our goal to provide useful information that you will find helpful in your continued pursuit of excellence in technology education. We look forward to having you on our campus.

Sincerely,
Greg F. Rutherford, Ph.D.
President
