McCullough’s Message

It is competition time for Autry’s three CareerTech student organizations. With 100 percent of Autry students participating in a CareerTech student organization, our students are learning valuable skills to develop them into well-rounded individuals for the future. Autry’s SkillsUSA, HOSA Future Health Professionals and BPA students are using their newly attained knowledge to compete at regional, state and national competitions. 


Through these organizations students are building a network of colleagues that can last a lifetime.  They are also developing professional skills that will prepare them for their future careers. Many of them are stepping out of their comfort zone for the first time and taking on responsibilities they have never had before. They are becoming leaders with the skills to thrive in the community.

We at Autry Technology Center have made it our mission to align resources, people, knowledge, skills and opportunities to build self-worth and ensure economic prosperity in Oklahoma and beyond. As a workforce resource, Autry sees students as its products and industry as its customer.
