"Coming from such a small town environment the CHCC has helped me far past what an average high school would as far as preparing me for continued learning. The skills that I have learned through lecture and hands-on experience at CHCC has pushed me to go above and beyond what I would have otherwise. CHCC prepared me to work for what I wanted to do and gave me some of the skills I needed to move forward on my own.”  -Shane Hoy, Class of 2015
