 Clayton Barker

Construction Superintendent, DLSD Homes


 I attended Southeastern from 2015 to 2018 in pursuit of my bachlor degree in IT-Supervision
Concentration. During this time I was fortunate to see the department grow and move
to the new technology building.


The progress this department made is tremendous, I learned so much during my time
in the IT program and this program has opened many career opportunities for me. I
hope to expand students opportunities by providing my expertise in the residential
construction field and what this field has to offer.
