PTC Receives Gold Star School Award for 15th Year

Team Radio Marketing Group - August 9, 2017 2:49 pm

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 15th 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.


Accepting the Gold Star School award for Pioneer Tech were, from left, Terri Busch, Communications & Marketing Coordinator; Traci Thorpe, Deputy Superintendent and Gay Norris, Pioneer Tech Board of Education President.  This is the 15th Gold Star School Award that Pioneer Tech has received at the Oklahoma Association of Technology Centers Summer Conference.
