WWTC Partners for Progress

The Oklahoma Association for Technology Centers (OATC) recognized top industry partners for training and employing thousands of Oklahoma workers through CareerTech technology center programs at the annual Partners for Progress awards ceremony. 

WWTC selected Davis Correctional Facility in Holdenville for their commitment to advancing career technical education through utilization of WWTC’s programs and through exemplary commitments to workforce excellence and education in the community.

State secretary for commerce, Sean Kouplen, who was on hand to congratulate award recipients said, “Partners for Progress represents a powerful alliance between CareerTech and employers to train Oklahomans and put them to work in quality jobs.  Last year alone, almost 7,000 organizations took advantage of CareerTech training resulting in more than 350,000 enrollments statewide.  That is a powerful step toward building a top ten state with skilled workers.”

Wade Walling, WWTC Superintendent said, “The Davis Correctional Facility has a long-standing partnership with WWTC that benefits both organizations.  We assist one another with numerous projects including employee development, emergency preparedness planning and training, advisory committee participation, and community projects.  Additionally, The Davis Correctional Facility has made a significant impact on WWTC’s Student of the Month recognition by providing meaningful incentives to the student winners.”
