Mark Byrd is one of Kansas City’s strong community leaders for education and the President and founder of New Reflections Technical Institute. NRTI was an idea created by Mark, after seeing the disadvantages of the Kansas City Metro communities and job placement.
For nearly 20 years Mark has developed a plan to address the social and economic issues that affect our communities everyday, and he will be a great asset to our teams.
He has worked tirelessly to provide Kansas City with the services needed to change the way people live and how they view their community. His passion has expanded into what NRTI is today, offering technical training to thousands of students.
This season Mark will be helping our teams at our Season 4 competition at Union Station and he has a number of workshop skills and experience, including carpentry and woodworking, painting and plumbing. Mark will also help our teams with time management, creativity and entrepreneurship. Welcome to out tool tech team Mark!
