You work hard to build a better future.
Whatever your reasons, there's pride in the hustle.
Get trained. Get ahead. Get paid.
We're proud to serve as a driving force for economic development. We do that by providing innovative and pragmatic solutions that work for our local businesses and industries through our Economic Development Center and Business Development Center. We have also developed an entrepreneurship awareness initiative within our career training programs, teaching students the concepts of business ownership and management. At Great Plains Tech, it's our mission help prepare individuals succeed in work and life.
Our students and staff are committed to communities we serve. From our staff and students volunteering with civic organizations to include the United Way of Southwest Oklahoma, Feed the Need, Lawton Food Bank, Tipton's Children's Home, Armed Services YMCA, to name a few. Even our own Great Plains Technology Center Foundation which provides scholarships and emergency grants for our students is supported by our staff. Through the 60 Minutes Club, many of our staff donate one hour's pay a month to help our students. This is our community, and we are deeply committed to making southwest Oklahoma a better place to live today, and tomorrow.
We're not only committed to helping our students learn skills to help them succeed at college, the military, or enter the workforce, we're also committed to helping them craft their leadership skills, through our Career Tech Student Organizations, Leadership Class, and Ambassador programs. We believe our students to be among the most highly skilled workers in the world, and leadership development plays a significant role in helping them succeed.
