Bath Regional Career and Technical Center


Anthony “Tony” Joseph Trippi

Anthony “Tony” Joseph Trippi, died suddenly of a massive heart attack on Thursday, April 3, 2014 at the age of 44 years old. He was a devoted teacher, colleague, friend, son and brother. Tony graduated from New Paltz High School in New York, Central Maine Technical College and the University of Southern Maine.

In 1995, Tony began his teaching career as a carpentry teacher at the Bath Regional Career & Technical Center and continued in that position until his death. He worked closely with the Bath Rotary building modular houses with his students. In 2008 he received the Paul Harris Fellowship Award, the Rotary International's Highest Honor, and in 2009 he was named Carpentry Teacher of the Year.

He had a great passion for teaching, the outdoors and his dogs, Buck and Coal who often joined students at the school work site. His involvement with his students was more than just academic. Tony not only taught his students the skills of carpentry, but also the skills they would need for life. If a student needed boots to work in, he bought them; if a student needed a father figure, he became that; if a student needed a coach to get them through school, he became that. Tony had an extraordinary ability to know what a person or project needed and just going ahead and getting it done. If anyone needed help, Tony was always there.

He and his great big smile are greatly missed by students, colleagues, friends and family.

At BRCTC we believe the best way to learn is by doing!

Welcome to the Bath Regional Career and Technical Center and to this portal into your future. We are celebrating more than forty years serving area students. We are not your father's vocational school. Instead, we are a school dedicated to preparing you for the world of work and the demands placed on students who want to graduate ready to enter a trade or continue their education in a post-secondary program. 

BRCTC is located adjacent to Morse High School in Bath, Maine, and serves the students of Boothbay Region High School, Lincoln Academy, Morse High School, and Wiscasset High School.

I am very excited about our programs and the opportunities we provide. I invite you to take some time, explore the links at the upper left, and take a trip through our programs.
