The Marianas Tourism Education Council and Marianas Visitors Authority recently brought their tourism message to Grace Christian Academy, highlighting career opportunities in architecture and design in the industry.
The tourism education team was joined by Fred Camacho, project manager/office manager of N15 Architecture Company, Inc., who was eager to share his experiences with the students.
“I have been able to be a part of a number of exciting projects, including the 880 duty-free in Kanoa Resort, the Marianas Business Plaza solar panel project, and the Club C project in Kanoa Resort,” said Camacho. “Our firm strives to meet the needs of our clients while working to ensure that our projects do not have an adverse effect on the environment and community.”
Following Camacho’s presentation, several students volunteered to draw their own building plans during the seminar, including homes, hotels, and other facilities.
MTEC also shared about the types of visitors the NMI receives, the benefits of tourism, careers in the industry, and what students can do to support tourism at a young age. MTEC will continue its school presentations in the spring.
In the meantime, MTEC is gearing up for its annual MTEC Tourism Summit slated for Jan. 24, 2016, where MY WAVE (Marianas Youth Welcome All Visitors Enthusiastically) Club members will explore aspects of the tourism industry more in-depth.
