Experienced Leaders In Performance Excellence
Tri County Tech, one of 29 public technology centers in the Oklahoma Career and Technical Education System, serves the residents of three counties and has a vision of inspiring success through life-changing learning experiences. With a goal that no student should be denied an education due to inability to pay, TCT provides scholarships and funding for student expenses such as medication, gasoline, clothing, and food. TCT has sustained the top 25% nationally rankings for student completion/retention and placement for nine fiscal years. The institution also increased graduate wages to well above the national average while growing its own revenues 34 percent since 2009–without federal funding and despite a sizable reduction in state funding. In 2018, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross awarded Tri County Tech as one of five recipients of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
Tri County Tech’s forward-thinking focus, not only on customers but also their workforce has created a high-performing, grace-filled culture of excellence. Tri County Tech added another year of being Great Place to Work® Certified to its locker of accolades, six years in a row. Tri County Tech has also been named to Fortunes’ Top Places to Work lists in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020.
