PTC Receives Gold Star Award for 15th Year

Ponca City, OK- ---Pioneer Technology Center (PTC) received the Gold Star School Award in Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma Association of Technology Centers (OATC), Summer Conference.   

The Gold Star School Award, sponsored by OATC, provides recognition to technology center districts with outstanding programs designed to meet a broad spectrum of community needs.

          This is the fifteenth year PTC has met and even exceeded the rigorous standards required in student retention, placement, quality program instruction, recruitment and guidance, assessment capabilities, and diverse business and industry training programs. 

"The Gold Star recognition is a challenge to attain. At Pioneer Tech we continue to focus on our mission of ‘enhancing lives and securing futures’ and it just so happens that focus results in gold star performance. The best thing is we did it together! None of us can accomplish great things alone…it takes a focused collaborative effort from each of us,” commented Bruce DeMuth, PTC Superintendent/CEO.

Gold Star School recognition is for 12 months and each school must go through the application process each year.  The award, sponsored by the OATC was presented during the annual Oklahoma Association of Career and Technology Awards program.   Founded in 1973, Pioneer Tech assists students and businesses in Kay County as well as parts of Osage and Pawnee Counties.
