"Mr. Cottrill has shown himself to be a highly motivated student. Zach works well with others and is a leader among his peers. He maintains a high standard for himself and those around him."

Doug Sands, UTC
"My dad has been a big influence. He is a completer in machine tool technology and what he does for a living is very interesting. At the United Technical Center, my instructor helped to increase my interest and influenced me to work hard."
"I would tell middle school students to always take life seriously and set extraordinary goals. As they continue in high school, they should always be aware of all the opportunities available to them that may not be known. They should stay focused on always improving."
Zach is an outstanding young man who stands out to me because of his conscientiousness. He always puts his best foot forward, regardless of the task.
