Trinity Warren – Canadian Valley Technology Center

CV Tech student’s career plans are a wreck -- and that’s just how she wants it.

THEN: After tragically losing both parents, this teenager needed a plan for her future and the futures of her two younger siblings. Trinity Warren said that during a turbulent time, she found stability in education. That education included auto collision classes at Canadian Valley Technology Center.

Trinity said she grew up playing with toy cars, and at CV Tech she got to play with full-sized cars. Working with her hands proved to be therapeutic for the young woman. At CV Tech, she

  • Learned the basics of sanding, scraping, hammering, washing and painting cars.
  • Became parliamentarian for the SkillsUSA chapter and competed at the national SkillsUSA competition.
  • Was state champion for Career Pathway Showcase.
  • Was a CV Tech student ambassador.

NOW: After graduating from Piedmont High School in May, Trinity plans to attend Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology. She wants to be a vehicle body technician. CV Tech instructor David Venard said he’s confident she will succeed, and described her as a leader and a mentor in his class.

Trinity will likely be working in a male-dominated environment and wants to be a role model for other girls who are making career decisions.

“I can make a difference,” she said.

The manager of Collision Works in Yukon also thinks Trinity can make a difference, and he has offered her a job after graduation.
