McCullough’s Message
 

It is competition season for Autry’s three CareerTech student organizations. I am proud to say 100 percent of Autry students participate in a CareerTech student organization where they are learning valuable skills to build themselves 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 their participation in these organizations, our students are building a network of colleagues that can last a lifetime and are developing professional skills that will prepare them for their future careers. For many of them, this is the first time they are stepping out of their comfort zone and taking on responsibilities they have never had before. They are becoming leaders with the skills to thrive in the community.

At Autry Technology Center, we 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.
