Welcome to WWTC!

Gold Star Award

Welcome to Wes Watkins Technology Center! Since 1987, WWTC has been helping area residents achieve their career goals and improve their way of life.

WWTC is dedicated to helping every student succeed. Well-equipped classrooms and computer labs enhance the student's learning capabilities. Our district serves portions of four counties: Okmulgee, Okfuskee, Hughes, and McIntosh, which include nine partner schools.

WWTC prepares students for careers and gives a competitive advantage to compete for the best jobs. We strive to be a school of first choice and offer education in health, construction and mechanical trades, business and information technology, and STEM. Programs are designed to have rigorous, challenging career technical content. Students will have the opportunity to earn industry certifications and/or licensure leading to employment and/or additional education preparing for high demand, high skilled, high wage occupations.

WWTC is a proud member of Oklahoma's distinguished CareerTech system. We are recognized by the Oklahoma Association of Technology Centers as a 24-time winner of the prestigious Gold Star School Designation, and is one of only 5 schools in the nation to receive the first Gold Improvement Award from the Technology Centers That Work (TCTW) initiative.

 

25 Years of Gold Star Status

WWTC was awarded the prestigious Gold Star School Award of Excellence again this year by the Oklahoma Association of Technology Centers (OATC).

The Gold Star Award Program honors only those schools which meet rigid and demanding criteria, maintain quality standards, and demonstrate exemplary programs designed to meet a broad spectrum of community needs.

This is the 25th year WWTC has achieved this designation.

Congratulations to Crystal Orr

Our very own Crystal Orr was recently recognized by the National Technical Honor Society for 18 years of dedicated service as an Advisor. Crystal currently works as the Student Records Clerk at WWTC, but has a diverse background, including serving in the military as a Telecommunications Operator Specialist which has helped her run a successful NTHS chapter at WWTC.

Working to increase membership despite rigorous standards set forth by NTHS, Crystal has seen member numbers consistently rise. Candidates for the organization must have no more than 4 absences in the semester being used to determine eligibility, a 95% in their WWTC program, a 3.5 GPA (for high school students), and be nominated by their teacher. Students should also demonstrate the core values set forth by NTHS, such as: skill, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, and leadership.

Crystal's favorite thing about NTHS is getting to take students to the NTHS Leadership Day. “You can see how they have grown as an individual through the organization,” Crystal noted. She has also had one student receive the prestigious Jon H. Poteat Scholarship through NTHS, which was a first for a WWTC student.

The mission of NTHS is to recognize and honor excellence in career and technical education. Crystal is helping WWTC students to achieve this standard every day.
