McCullough’s Message


While Manufacturing/STEM Day is officially set for Friday, Oct. 4, we at Autry Technology Center are proud to celebrate this industry 365 days a year.

The United States has 12.75 million manufacturing jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employing 8.5 percent of the workforce, these jobs pay 12 percent more than all others. In 2017, they earned an average of $84,832 per worker with benefits.

Unfortunately, 89 percent of manufacturers are leaving jobs unfilled because they can’t find qualified applicants, according to a 2018 Deloitte Institute report. The skills gap could leave 2.4 million vacant jobs between 2018 and 2028, costing the industry $454 billion in 2028.

In recognition of the event, our full-time programs will hear from a local speaker in their program’s industry on Oct. 4. These speakers will share knowledge, insights and their hopes for the future of their industry.

The employment base for Enid is grounded in manufacturing and we are focused on providing a prepared and productive workforce for our industry partners right here in Enid. The future of manufacturing is here and we are excited to be part of it.
