Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! I hope everyone enjoyed a safe and fun summer. Northeast Technology Center is excited to kick off the new year. Whether you are new as a student or an employee, or returning to us from last year, I encourage you to make the most of your time at NTC. Opportunities abound!
As with most school years, we have gotten off to a great (and really busy) start. Many of us gathered in Oklahoma City on August 1 and 2, for our annual summer conference, and then on August 5, the entire district gathered at our Pryor Campus for required annual training and great team building exercises. A big thank you to all those that helped make our in-service training a success. Classes will begin on Wednesday, August 10, 2016.
Construction projects at Afton are nearly complete. The new Culinary and Diesel program areas look fantastic. The snack bar and kitchen areas have also been renovated to be much more accessible and less congested. The transformation is amazing. In addition to these major projects, our maintenance and custodial staff have been busy all summer sprucing things up at all of our locations.
We have a few new employees since our last newsletter. We will highlight these new folks beginning with our September TechKnow.
Until then, as Milton Berle said, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
Keep up the good work!
