Pioneer Technology Center received the Gold Star School Award in Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma Association of Technology Centers' Summer Conference.

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

This is the 14th year PTC has met or 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,” said Bruce DeMuth, PTC Superintendent/CEO.

Gold Star School recognition is for 12 months and each school must go through the application process each year.

Founded in 1973, Pioneer Tech assists students and businesses in Kay County as well as parts of Osage and Pawnee Counties.
