Andres Vasquez built his first home as a senior in high school as part of a class project, and he loved the experience so much he thought about becoming a contractor. With a little encouragement from his teacher, he began studying architecture instead — and now, a master’s degree from the University of Idaho later, he’s an AIT III.

Andres assists with modeling, drafting, and preparing documents for construction. He was part of the revitalization of the Boise Airport, and the concessions he drew are now used by thousands of visitors every year. He’s a vocal community advocate who encourages students to push themselves further in higher education, just like his teacher did for him.
