Rep. Orr, business leaders celebrate new JTED buildings

State Rep. Ethan Orr

Dozens of educators, lawmakers, students, staff and community leaders were in the house for JTED’s recent open houses and ribbon cuttings showcasing new buildings and expansion of the Master Pieces and Camino Seco campuses.

Representative Orr says that it is easy for him to support programs such as JTED that enable people to secure jobs with good wages, and to contribute to the economic well-being of our State by becoming tax payers.

The new 3,000-square-foot structure at Master Pieces, building 5, houses the second location for the JTED Medical Assisting (MA) program. This will alleviate long commutes for many students from Tucson’s Northwest side to JTED’s campus in Vail. The building is also designed to be expanded into a 9,000-square-foot building to meet future demand.

The Camino Seco facility, building 4, is an answer to the rapid expansion of JTED’s Cosmetology and Healthcare Foundation courses. The new 14,000-square-foot facility houses a state-of-the-art lab, a student commons area, and shell space for future expansion.

ESB Modular Manufacturing built the Master Pieces development, costing $406,436.62. BFL constructed the $2.1 million Camino Seco facility.
