8th Graders Tour Owasso Tech
Tulsa Tech & TCC On Same Owasso Campus
Free For Qualified Collinsville HS Students
Collinsville's 8th graders (CHS 2019) toured the Tulsa Tech campus at Owasso Friday Jan.23, 2015. The relatively new facility is adjacent to Highway 169 a bit south of 116th St. N. (between Collinsville and Owasso). These students were invited to tour and see educational opportunities there now, before they starting making course selections as CHS freshman next year. With a large 8th grade class (~218 total + their teachers) it took 4 buses (2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon) to make the short trip from the middle school. Collinsville high school students that keep up their grades and attendance can attend Tulsa Tech classes for free (including transportation) here and at the other Tulsa Tech campuses. There is also a section of the new building with TCC classrooms.
While touring with the 8th graders, I spotted 5 CHS seniors who are already students at the Owasso Tech campus (L-R) Colt Stevens, Stephanie Torbett, Chris Luby, Jakeb Glaus, and Amanda Good. There are likely others I missed, but plan to visit the other tech campuses soon with the yearbook staff for additional photos. -- Ted Wright

This December 2011 photo (from Highway 169) shows the Owasso facility still under construction.
I believe the first classes were held there starting in August 2013. -- Ted

Friday Status: I've yet to make any progress today on the Thursday wrestling photo pages as I've instead made two trips to the Tulsa Tech Owasso Campus today with Collinsville 8th graders ... and have an email inbox full of other news (including teachers of the year) I'll add to the backlog and try to work off this weekend. -- Ted -- Friday 3:30pm 1/23/2015
(Also, I've been making steady progress on the 2015 Senior pages in past few weeks, but have months more work to do before they go online in May 2015. The Owasso Tech trips will produce a few photos for next week ... but most are an investment in CHS 2019 senior pages)
