Our Community

Each year students and faculty at SUN Tech take part in community service projects including dress-down days which raise money for the American Cancer Society, building dug-outs for local ball fields, and larger projects such as a barn wiring project for Ashburn’s Animals on a Mission.

I had the greatest pleasure of working with the students and instructor of the electrical program from SUN Area Technical Institute.  Never before have I met a more responsible, mature and educated group of young adults.  After the project, I toured the school and was very impressed at how advanced the learning programs were and what incredible educators and staff were employed.  The entire experience was above any expectations I had.  Thanks SUN Tech.
