ACE program prospective members and their families learned about the mentoring program in architecture, construction and engineering from Tampa Electric Company representative Vonia Wathers at Thursday's student orientation meeting at BHS. The new program, the first in Polk County, gives students from Bartow's Engineering and Construction academies who are interested in the three fields, a taste of the three career tracks throughout the semester-long program. During the program, students will examine bridge construction and design under the guidance of mentors from area firms. The semester project will include projects that could lead to internships, summer jobs or scholarships. Academy instructors Rod Tampling and Jimmy GIles said mentors are still needed to guide the 50 student participants. Anyone interested in mentoring these students is asked to contact Tampling or Giles at BHS.
