Treva McNeill - Metro Technology Centers

From passion to profession, Metro Tech student opens her own flower shop.

THEN: A retired TSA agent who described herself as a crafty person, Treva McNeill liked to make floral arrangements and decorations for her family and friends. When she decided to turn her passion into a profession, she enrolled in the horticulture program at Metro Technology Centers. As a student in that program, Treva

  • Won first place in floral arranging at the Skills USA state contest.
  • Learned professional techniques of floral design.
  • Learned the vernacular for floral arrangements and how to purchase supplies.

NOW: After graduating from the horticulture program, Treva opened The Floral Chateau, a small flower shop that offers custom and traditional arrangements for all occasions. When a customer requests a certain type of arrangement, Treva knows what she’s doing and what she’s talking about. She plans to continue improving her skills and eventually expand her business to add more employees.


I display my state champion banner to remind myself that with a little bit of passion and love, a person can accomplish anything. Metro Tech gave me the knowledge and skill set to back up my passion and talent."
