Gae Neal (CEO and Superintendent of Tulsa Tech) discussed the new Tulsa Tech
campus between Collinsville and Owasso east of Highway 169. Ground was broken
recently with construction set to start in about 10 months. The campus will
support about 650 additional students for Oklahoma's oldest and largest career
and technology education institution in the CareerTech system. Today's Tulsa
Tech has evolved greatly from the old "vo tech" days. High school
juniors and seniors can receive free programs to learn employable skills and/or
college credits (for only $8/hour). Adults can also keep up-to-date for their
employers. -- (Previous Coverage:
