About Our Guest Presenters

Jeffersontown High School and Trinity High School are two of the area high schools which host the KCUC-supported ACE Mentor program.

The mission of ACE is to engage, excite, and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in architecture, engineering, construction, and related fields through mentoring by industry professionals.

These mentors (many of whom work for KCUC-affiliated companies) meet weekly with the students during the school year to guide the students as they work towards a final project, introducing them to the careers, industry vocabulary, and various roles companies play in the construction industry.

The students from each high school present their projects at an end-of-school-year gala (May 10 this year). High school seniors are eligible to earn scholarships for continuing their education in college or technical schools.
