The Alamo Colleges District has named Janice Roth as the new manager for the district’s Central Texas Technology Center (CTTC) in New Braunfels. She has served as the student success coordinator at the CTTC since 2006. As the new CTTC manager, Roth will oversee the operations of the center, a regional campus of the district that offers students in the Comal and Guadalupe counties area the opportunity to earn college credit and train for high-demand jobs with local employers.
Interest in the center’s programs has been so great that a $6.3 million expansion was added in 2016. “The CTTC is an important component of fulfilling the Alamo Colleges mission of empowering our diverse communities for success,” said Alamo Colleges District Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. “Janice is highly regarded in the local community and will provide outstanding leadership as the center continues to grow to meet the region’s higher education needs,” he added. Roth, a New Braunfels resident for 30 years, began her career in community service as director of social services at the River Gardens Residential Facility in New Braunfels. She then operated her own business as a social work consultant and therapist before joining the Alamo Colleges District as an adjunct faculty member, a position she still holds in addition to her duties at the CTTC. Roth’s previous experience as the center’s student success coordinator served as excellent preparation for becoming the center’s manager.
She oversaw the center’s operations in the absence of the center manager, assisted in the growth of academic and job training courses, participated in the development of workforce initiatives with business and industry partners, supervised center employees and worked with the center’s advisory board. Roth holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work, from Texas State University and Our Lady of the Lake University, respectively, and is a licensed master social worker (LMSW) and a licensed childcare administrator (LCCA). At the Alamo Colleges District, high quality education and affordable costs provide exceptional value to students and alumni who are major contributors to the economy and culture of our community.
