Reese Shelton

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Program: Building Technology - Carpentry

“Reese drives from Montpelier, Idaho, each day, arrives on time, and is ready to work. Being a single parent to two young children adds a lot to his plate each morning, but he is often times the first to arrive. He is very serious about the knowledge and skills he is gaining so he can provide for his family.” -Curtis Dent, Department Head

Reese Shelton is reinventing himself. He has worked as a masonry sub-contractor in Montpelier, Idaho the last 15 years. “If it has anything to do with mud, I usually have my hands in it!” explains Shelton. “I have a good reputation in Montpelier and am at the top of my game in the masonry world. It's been pretty good to me, but I feel I've stagnated a bit. I needed to expand my horizons, which is what brought me to BATC. I want to grow my business and intend to be the top builder in the area!”

Reese has always loved building things and working with his hands. “I know who I am, I know what I like, and I know what I want to do; so I enrolled in the Building Trades program and it's a great fit for me.”

“I have worked on lots of jobs over the years and have seen a lot of wrong – see it all the time. At BATC I get the proper training. Curtis Dent, my instructor, has been a commercial contractor for over 20 years. I am in awe of his expertise and vast knowledge. He knows the codes, but exceeds the codes on every project he undertakes. For instance, he uses energy trusses on all of his projects. He does these little things hidden behind the walls that you’ll never see, but will realize in energy savings over the years. I want to be like the boys (my instructors) -top knotch builders!”

“Additionally, Curtis is a great manager – we’re always under the gun with weather conditions, sub-contractor schedules, etc. He has so much on his plate while instructing and working with students who have vastly different personalities and learning styles. He keeps everything and everyone on track and progressing in a timely fashion. Not only am I receiving excellent instruction and hands-on experience in building, but I am gaining invaluable human relations and supervisory skills. I’m honored to be learning from the best.”

Reese shares his school experiences with his daughters every night. “We review my homework as well as theirs. Daddy has accountability. I want to set a good example for them. Going to school as a single parent, while also trying to bring in some income is tough,” admits Reese. "We're making some sacrifices now, but in the long run it's going to pay off. The end goal is to be the guy you hire to build your home; I want to be that guy!”

A Blueprint For Success

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Jonathan Durfee

Program: Building Technology and Cabinetmaking

"An 8th grade shop class sparked a passion for woodworking," remarks business owner Jonathan Durfee of Jonathan Durfee Woodworking. "I had a full tuition scholarship to USU but couldn't find any classes that fit with what I wanted to do. I learned of the Cabinetmaking and Millwork department at BATC, and after one visit determined it was where I wanted to go to school. The training I received at Bridgerland ATC solidified my decision to establish a career in woodworking. I now have a thriving business that was made possible because of what I gained from attending BATC."

Durfee was highlighted as outstanding student in both the Cabinetmaking and Building Technology programs. "I started the cabinetry classes in June 2006, the week after I graduated from high school, and completed the program in February 2007. After my mission in 2010, I enrolled in Building Technology and graduated in April 2011."

"I thrived on the hands-on learning BATC provides! Learning the technical aspects from the curriculum and then applying it hands-on was one of the best parts for me. Being able to work at your own speed is a good thing. Take responsibility for your learning and don't wait to be told what to do. Use some initiative!"

"I took my old woodworking shop and turned it into one big shop by connecting it to the family farm's shop. I borrowed money from the Utah Microloan program and purchased all the tools I needed. I build cabinets, furniture, pretty much anything anyone wants. I am the owner and sole employee. On occasion, however, my Dad helps me with the installation of cabinets. I create the designs and build the furniture and cabinets from start to finish. "

Jonathan’s business goals include building a bigger shop so he can have more room for projects and additional tools. "Hopefully I can expand into being a general contractor so that I can build quality houses from top to bottom, inside and out."

"I enjoy being able to give people a quality piece for a price they can afford. I like creating something beautiful from plain, unfinished boards and get a great sense of satisfaction from being part of a project through all of its stages. Bridgerland ATC is a great place to learn a trade. Every day I use the skills I learned at BATC."

TaSheena Bodily

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Student of the Month for September

Program: Business Technology

TaSheena is a hardworking student who is willing to accept any challenge and come out the conqueror. She is very positive and a joy to work with each day. What impresses me the most is her ability to be responsible of her educational destiny. She truly has been a success in the Business Technology Program. -Kyle Saunders, Department Head



Kim Stewart

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Student of the Month for August

Program: Business Technology

“Kim has excelled in every class she has taken in our program. She is conscience of each course and her responsibilities. She did extraordinarily well in her medical courses. She is a hard worker and wants to understand thoroughly everything she studies.” -Sue Cardwell, Advisor/Instructor

“I was a teenage bride and have devoted my life to caring for my five beautiful children and four grandchildren. Being a Mom was my first full-time job! Education was always important to me, however, and I had always planned to go to college,” shares Kim. “I got excellent grades in high school, graduated with a scholarship, and was accepted at Ricks College where I attended with my husband until we moved to Utah.”

The opportunity to return to school just didn’t fit into Kim’s life while she was raising her family. “I did start at UVU several years ago, when my children were grown, but after one semester determined it just wasn’t a great fit for me,” explains Stewart. “I saw students spending so much time, money, and effort getting a piece of paper and walking away with very little that pertained to their life.”

“To finish college with skills made great sense to me, so when we moved to Logan two years ago, BATC was my answer. It was close, affordable, and could provide the technical skills I needed to have in a short period of time,” says Kim. Returning to school took some adjustment, “My brain hadn’t been functioning in ‘school mode’ for some time. I needed to relearn how to study and test. My instructors were very patient and helpful to me, so in very little time I felt comfortable being a student once again,” proclaims Stewart.

“Accounting has been the greatest challenge for me as it’s been the most foreign to me. It’s not my favorite, but I know I can do it!” proudly states Stewart. “We learned the entire Microsoft package in this program and have a project at the end of Excel and Powerpoint where we integrate all that we learned within the rubric they’ve chosen to showcase our skills. My son has a new firearms business so I was able to design my project with his business in mind. It’s been so fun to see that what I created for him works!”

Sue Cardwell, Business Technology instructor says, “Kim has excelled in every class she has taken in our program. She is conscience of each course and her responsibilities and did extraordinarily well in her Medical courses. She is a hard worker and wants to understand thoroughly everything she studies.”

Kim continues, “My husband wants to start his own business, so ideally I want to go to work for him. I can see where I can be part of his business plan by setting up his accounting, designing spreadsheets, preparing presentations, and taking care of communications with other companies.”

“I recently read the quote, ‘When we play small we don’t serve the world well’. I thought, wow, I’ve been doing that – women do that. I’ve been surprised that many of my peers have said, ‘I could never go back to school’ when they learn that I’m a student. Females often discount themselves before they’ve ever tried, and that’s sad. Well, I’m not playing small anymore!” declares Stewart. “I’ve learned to say ‘YES’ to all the opportunities that life presents!”



Jace Hudson

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Student of the Month for July

Program: Automotive Service

“Jace is an enthusiastic student – always punctual and very productive in the lab. These traits will serve him well as he goes through life.”

“Whenever I hear a car start up that has a great sounding engine, it gets my blood pumping! My Dad has always worked on cars. His passion definitely rubbed off on me. I love to take something that doesn’t work and fix it. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment. Anything with a motor –four wheelers, action sports, bikes, cars, motorcycles --that’s what I enjoy,” declares Mendon native, Jace Hudson.

“By the end of my high school career at Mountain Crest I began to think about what I wanted to do the rest of my life. I wanted a career that would make me happy, one that I would truly enjoy. At the time I was working as a small mechanic at USU and loved my time there. It never felt like I was at work. The time just flew by. BATC has a great reputation so I enrolled in the Automotive program in November of 2012.

Jace’s primary focus right now is on school. He attends Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 2:30. “I want to be the best mechanic I can be! I want to treat people fairly. I want to be so good that my customers will follow me wherever I go throughout my career,” proclaims Hudson. “Transportation is important to all of us, our livelihoods often depend on it. It’s a challenge to please each customer, but I want to deliver outstanding service, and earn the trust of each of my clients.”

Wondering what you’d like to be? Jace’s advice is to assess your hobbies, interests when making that determination. “Growing up I thought I’d be a psychologist because I really enjoy helping people. I began to realize, however, that I was spending every spare minute and weekends working on cars. It’s part of my DNA – motors, going fast, having fun. I want to be excited to go to work every day, so follow your passion!”



Jamie Olsen

She exemplifies what being a nurse truly means.”



Drew Demler

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Drew went into the family masonry business right out of high school and learned a skilled trade. Things went pretty well until the economy took a big hit in the late 80’s and the construction industry suffered. “I spent two years in the Reno area where there was plenty of work. We returned to work in Cache Valley where we could find a job. After two years of being away from home and living in Motels, I had enough. I enjoyed the drafting classes I took in high school, so I quit my bricklaying job and enrolled at BATC full-time in the Drafting Technology program. Being single at the time made it easier to do.

I attended BATC for about nine months and was offered a drafting position at Icon Health & Fitness. I have gained valuable knowledge and experience at Icon. I have been able to work my way up from being a Drafter, to an Engineering Tech, to managing a team of engineers,” says Demler, who is currently an Engineering Manager. “I deal mainly with developing the designs for our electronic plastic enclosures.”

We are proud to have Drew among our alumni. He has served on the Drafting Advisory Board on behalf of Icon Health & Fitness for a number of years and has provided valuable input.



Janessa Everett

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Program: Cosmetology

Student of the Month -- May 2013

“Janessa is an excellent student, superior BATC advocate, and an extremely positive person – so helpful and full of integrity. She is a JOY to have around!” -Vanessa Landon-Earley, Department Head

Meet Janessa!

“I am so lucky! I meet adults all the time who dislike their jobs or who have no idea what they really want to do. I haven’t been out of high school that long and I already have a skill I can use to support myself my entire life by doing something I wholeheartedly enjoy.”

“I chose a career in this industry because I’ve always loved doing hair,” says the Perry, Utah native. “It began with styling my Barbie dolls’ hair as a young child. When I was a 12 I did my older sister’s hair and makeup for her senior portraits. When my school counselor told me that I could take the Cosmetology program in high school, I followed my heart and jumped at the chance. “

Janessa began the Cosmetology program the summer of her sophomore year, attended during her junior year, and again the summer of her junior year, then again during her senior year. “I’ve loved every minute of it!” Completing much of the program during high school has saved me a lot of time and money.”

“All the BATC instructors are so kind, friendly, helpful, patient, and willing to work with each of us students, even if you’re not enrolled in their program! I really value the one-on-one time with each of my instructors. They each have unique backgrounds, experience and knowledge and I learn as much as I can from them. Additionally I love that we are required to pass each exam at 90%, while at the state level the bar is set at 75%. I feel extremely confident and well prepared to pass the state boards. I appreciate the level of excellence BATC has set for all their students.”

When asked to identify something she has learned about herself she giggled, “Weirdly enough, I have found that I love giving pedicures. Most people are squeamish about feet, but if you think about it like, “hey, your feet are in your shoes all day and are probably cleaner than your hands.” I really enjoy the process of giving a pedicure, the one-on-one time with my clients, and giving them a relaxing and fun experience.”

No beauty school drop out here; in fact, quite the opposite. Janessa will graduate from BATC on May 9, 2013, with a certificate in Cosmetology as well as Nail Technician. “The hardest part of this journey for me was when I added working on the Nail Technician program while still doing Cosmetology. Monday through Friday, twelve hours a day, I am at BATC. It’s my home away from home!” Janessa is in the Cosmetology lab from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm, takes a half hour break, then from 3:00pm to 8:00 pm shifts gears and works on the Nail Technician program. “It’s a long day, but I am so happy and comfortable here. Look what I’ve achieved!”



Julie Henderson

Posted By: Emily Hobbs

Program: Medical Assisting

Her Instructor Says: "Julie is an excellent student, she is very dependable, professional, and always goes the extra mile. She is an asset to the Medical Assisting program and I have no doubt that she will be a success in all that she does.”

Meet Julie!

“Education has always been important to me,” exclaims Julie. One of eight children, she grew up in Delta, Utah, where she graduated valedictorian of her high school class while being actively involved in the band, orchestra, drill team, school musicals as well as other community events. Julie met and married her husband after attending Utah State University her freshmen year. “When we married, I chose to put my formal education on hold for a time, but never stopped learning and growing. Raising a family is a huge education in and of itself!” chuckles Henderson.

“As a mother of five, I didn’t return to school until my children were all in school and well on their way to being more independent. Eight years ago I enrolled in the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course at BATC. Working as a CNA allowed me to work in the evenings and still be home with my children after school. It was a good fit for me until a 10% cut in my husband’s salary necessitated a need to increase my earning capacity. Again, BATC was a good fit for me.” Julie became a Medical Assisting student in August of 2012.

“The Medical Assisting program allows me to attend classes during the day while my kids are away from home. As a career, it’s challenging, rewarding, and fulfills all the needs I have, plus I don’t have to work nights, holidays or weekends. Perfect for busy moms! Medical Assisting is a certification I could complete within a years’ time; at my age tackling a four-year nursing degree didn’t make much sense,” she declares.

“Bridgerland has been a great blessing for me and this community. Without BATC I would have had to commute out of the valley or pursue a four-year degree. I wouldn’t have been able to acquire this certification,” reveals Julie.

Returning to school at any age causes anyone some degree of angst and anxiety. “I was worried I wouldn’t be able to handle the class load and keep up with the younger students. Our brains just don’t work as well as they did when we were younger!” states Henderson. “My daughter is in the program with me. It’s been fun to study together and cheer for one another as we’ve progressed through the program. It’s a unique situation, but I’ve loved having her in my classes. She’s been a great support to me.”

“Education has always been a priority in my family,” declares Julie. “My children have always known what’s expected of them and luckily, all five of them have been 3.9 or 4.0 students. The workplace is so competitive these days. I’m glad my children have figured out that every skill they possess, certificate or degree they earn, only enhances their value with employers.”
