"Education is a top priority in Price County. I
was able to take courses at the tech while my
children attended kindergarten through 12th
grade. The Phillips School District provided
them with an excellent education and solid
foundation for college.
Unfortunately, when they were graduating
high school years ago, the tech school only
offered a few courses. Thankfully, NTC has
greatly expanded in recent years and students
can take many courses and earn degrees
without having to go away to college. NTC is a
great asset to our community.”
