A monthly update from Brady McCullough, superintendent and CEO of Autry Technology Center.
We are headed into a new year at Autry Technology Center; fiscal year that is. With the beginning of a new year comes the opportunity to evaluate our past and make adjustments for the future.
Setting goals is important. Research has proven that people who set goals are more successful. A study at Yale University showed that writing down goals helps us achieve them – you are 42 percent more likely to achieve your goal by writing it down. As we begin our new fiscal year at Autry, we are setting new goals for the next twelve months. We know we can always better ourselves and in turn, better those around us.
We take pride in being the community workforce resource as we strive to fill the workforce with qualified workers and set our future generations up for success.
We are the Workforce Capital.
