A monthly update from Brady McCullough, superintendent and CEO of Autry Technology Center.

McCullough’s Message

As we look forward to Manufacturing/STEM Day on Friday, October 5, we at Autry Technology Center are proud to celebrate 51 years of being the workforce capital and providing Enid and the surrounding area with a prepared and productive workforce. The future of manufacturing is here and we are excited to be part of it.

Manufacturing/STEM Day is a national event focusing on jobs in manufacturing with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math. Last year, nearly 3,000 events took place across the country. In recognition of the event, each of our full-time programs will hear from a local speaker in their program’s industry on Oct. 5. These speakers will share knowledge, insights and their hopes for the future of their industry.

Autry Technology Center is proud to be part of this event and focus on companies right here in Enid. Autry is working to train the next generation of professionals and close the skills gap affecting Northwest Oklahoma.
