January is School Board Recognition Month. Pioneer Technology Center (PTC) recognized their board members at the January PTC Board of Education meeting this month. All members were given customized 50th Anniversary ornaments, designed and printed by students in the Visual Communications Program as a recognition of their service.
Serving as a link between the community and tech center, school board members are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for the schools they serve. The Pioneer Tech Board of Education meets monthly on the second Tuesday.
“Board members are the unsung heroes of education, dedicating their time and expertise to steer the course of the schools they serve. The commitment of PTC's school board plays a crucial role in ensuring the future success of the students, clients, business and industry of our district,” said Traci Thorpe, Superintendent/CEO of Pioneer Tech. “We are grateful for their invaluable service and tireless efforts on behalf of Pioneer Tech and those whose lives we touch.” Board members serving at Pioneer Tech include JD Soulek, Blackwell; Gay Norris, Ponca City; Dr. Rachel Shuey-Bunney, Tonkawa; Debbie Leaming, Newkirk; and Laurence Beliel, Ponca City.
