Tracy graduated from SCC in 2007, and he always planned to work at an architecture firm. “I never saw myself working for anyone other than an architect. I just wanted to draw plans for buildings,” he says.
But from the beginning, his instructors at SCC explained there is a lot more that can be done with this degree. These skills are in demand at a lot of companies. Tracy started at Avista, an energy company involved in the production, transmission and distribution of energy, in 2008. He’s now an assistant design drafter.
“Now that I’m at Avista, and I’m drawing circuit wires, telecom racks and substation panel houses, it’s just as rewarding as windows, doors and walls,” he says.
