The Metro Tech Foundation’s 8th Annual “Sowing the Seeds of Success” Banquet recognizes student achievement through scholarships awarded to students completing their career training at Metro Technology Centers. The event is scheduled for Wednesday April 26th, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club, Nichols Hills, Oklahoma. Express Employment Professionals is the presenting, platinum sponsor of the event this year. Express will have the opportunity to designate a Metro Tech Foundation Scholarship, along with a speaking opportunity at the event. Jennifer Anderson, VP Marketing & Communications said “Express Employment Professionals’ sponsorship of the Metro Tech Foundation supports our already mutually beneficial relationship. Metro Tech trains people and we put them to work. Express values our partnership with Oklahoma Career Tech educators and facilities and looks forward to putting Oklahomans to work. This is just one more way we can help support Oklahomans on their path to achieve a higher level of success.”
Debra Ponder-Nelson, executive director for the foundation said “We so graciously thank Express Employment Professionals for partnering with us and serving as our platinum sponsor this year, as well as all our community partners who sponsor and attend our event. The Annual Banquet serves as a fundraiser to assist students with emergency needs and help them remain focused and on track to complete their career training program by providing financial support when problems and obstacles get in the way. The Banquet also rewards students for academic achievement with scholarships, and is a special time to “thank” our sponsors for their giving, which allows the Foundation to continue its mission in serving students. It is through gifts, donations and volunteer work that the Metro Tech Foundation is able to help over 300 students annually.”
Metro Technology Centers is a career and technology center with four campuses serving businesses, adults and high school students. Metro Technology Centers locations include the Springlake Campus, South Bryant Campus, Aviation Career Campus and the Downtown Business Campus.
