Cybertex Institute of Technology is proud to be part of Killeen’s community, where we opened a campus in 2008. We were honored to have a special guest at our most recent graduation ceremony this past Thursday: Killeen mayor Jose Sagarra showed support for what we’re doing at Cybertex, speaking to our graduating class.
He drew from the well-known proverb, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” to acknowledge the steps our students have taken in securing their network engineering and medical assistant certification.
According to the Killeen Daily Herald, which ran an article on Saturday about the ceremony, Sagarra told the audience:
“Life kind of tends to get in the way. So no matter what you guys want to do after today to get back on your journey, you know that it’s not always a straight path. … And as those challenges come, and they will, just think back on today and what you’ve accomplished.”
He also graciously acknowledged Cybertex’s role in the journey, noting, “I want to thank the school, because this is a great opportunity for our city, where we have such a good school, where you don’t have to go to far to learn a trade that will probably take you a long way.”
Here’s video from Sagarra’s speech:
The 35 graduates are the latest to graduate from Cybertex’s two programs, which allow students to gain certification in their respective fields in just over nine months, and prepares them for careers in medicine and technology.
The article included an interview with Cybertex’s Killeen campus director, Matthew Zarling, who said that students engage in professional development, including interview techniques and resume preparation, as part of Cybertex’s goal of placing graduates into medical and IT jobs.
If you live in or near Killeen, and you’re looking to enter a career as a medical assistant or network engineer, you don’t need to wait. The admissions department can get you pointed in the right direction to become part of a future class of Killeen graduates. It could be you having the mayor wish you well within a year of starting the program!
