“Providing our community with exceptional career and technical education opportunities is one of the most important investments we can make,” said Dr. Steve Tiger, CEO and Superintendent of Tulsa Tech. “We’re very proud of our district’s accomplishments, and School Board Recognition Month is a time to say thank you to our elected board members for their passion, commitment and support of our mission, “educating people for success in the workplace.”
At Tulsa Tech, school board members develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the district, leading business partners, community leaders and other constituents. They bear responsibility for nearly 6,000 full-time students, over 12,000 part-time evening and weekend students, over 750 corporate training clients, and over 600 employees across six campuses.
