South Texas Regional Training Center 402 Carter St. Hondo,TX 78861 830-426-2018
History: In 2011, after over four years and with the persistent effort of the City of Hondo, its Mayor and Management Staff, the South Texas Regional Training Center was opened on Hondo’s Airbase to serve the vocational and academic individual needs of Hondo, Medina County and the surrounding area. The facility is operative under an Interlocal Agreement between the City of Hondo, Medina County, Southwest Texas Junior College (SWTJC) in Uvalde, Alamo Colleges in San Antonio, and Texas State Technical College in Harlingen. Funding to renovate the existing structure was provided by the City of Hondo Economic Development Corporation ($1,000,000) and the Commissioner’s Court of Medina County ($300,000). The un-renovated building and the land on which the building is situated were provided by the City of Hondo.
