McCullough’s Message

Competition season is here for Autry’s three CareerTech Student Organizations – SkillsUSA, HOSA Future Health Professionals and Business Professionals of America. 100 percent of Autry students participate in a CareerTech Student Organization where they learn valuable skills to develop into well-rounded individuals for the future. These students are using their newly attained knowledge and training to compete at regional, state and national competitions. 
CareerTech Student Organizations allow our students to build a network of colleagues that can last a lifetime and develop professional skills that will prepare them for a successful career. For many students, this is the first time they are stepping out of their comfort zone and taking on responsibilities they have never had before. They are emerging as leaders with the skills to thrive in the community.

At Autry Technology Center, we are proud to align resources, people, knowledge, skills and opportunities to build self-worth and ensure economic prosperity in Oklahoma and beyond.
