Awards were presented in the September 6th board meeting at UBTech.

Congratulations to Director of Energy Services, Weslie Porter. Weslie recently was promoted as a Major in the United States Army. He received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Department of Defense due to his outstanding service in his community, country, and at UBTech.




Two awards were also given to Representative Scott Chew, and Representative Christine Watkins. They were given the “Connectivity” award for their continued support for technical education in the Uintah Basin. Both played an important role in helping secure funding for UBTech’s new welding building that will break ground next year.




Two students were recognized for their recent awards as “Student of the Month” for July and August. Great job to Jamilyn Ward, an Office Professional Student (pictured) and Alec Foster a Culinary Art Student (not pictured).
