Ponca City, OK — Pioneer Technology Center (PTC) is proud to announce Emily Tate as the Student of the Year. Tate, a recent graduate of the Practical Nursing (PN) program, she was selected for her outstanding achievements and dedication to her studies.

Tate recently was recognized at the PN Pinning Ceremony on April 26th, marking the near completion of her rigorous nursing program. Raised in Newkirk, Tate completed her High School Equivalency through Meridian Technology Center before embarking on her nursing career.

Throughout her time in the PN program, Tate demonstrated exceptional drive and dedication to mastering the curriculum. Despite the demands of her studies, she always made time to positively impact her classmates and patients during her clinical experiences.
