RTEC General Manager Hired

Yankton native Chauntel Wright has been hired as the new General Manager for RTEC replacing Josh Svatos who resigned from the position last summer.

RTEC Board Chairman Ron Kraft says as an instructor for Black Hills State University’s Engineering Technology program when the program was located at the RTEC, Wright developed relationships with local manufacturers and the Yankton community.

Kraft says with her experience in education there may be a role for Wright at RTEC teaching students the so-called soft skills that employers are often seeking in applicants.

Kraft says Wright will begin her duties as RTEC General Manager on Monday.
