Three Tulsa Tech students awarded $1,000 each
TULSA, OK – June 21, 2016 – The Tulsa Tech Education Foundation recently awarded three current and qualified adult students $1,000 each through the Foundation of Excellence Scholarship. Justin Robinson, Lisa Estes and Cesar Flores all were awarded based upon merit and performance in the classroom. Each were honored with a check presentation and award earlier this month at Tulsa Tech’s Skyline administration campus.
Students learning four areas of training in Manufacturing, Aviation, Automotive and Construction were recommended and nominated by their instructor and counselor for displaying outstanding characteristics in the classroom and in their chosen career field. Each student filled out an application, were selected as finalists through a Tulsa Tech Education Foundation committee, and interviewed by the Foundation Board of Directors before determining the award recipients.
“We are excited to be able to provide these students with the resources to continue their education here at Tulsa Tech,” said Associate Superintendent of Student Affairs, Robert Franklin. “Each student is well deserving and will be a tremendous asset in the workforce of the future.”
Robinson, a student in the Aviation Maintenance Technician program at Tulsa Tech, hopes to continue his education to become aerospace engineer and follow in his grandfather’s footsteps.
Estes is a student in the Automotive Service program, and excited about utilizing the scholarship to purchase additional tools for her future career and to help with bills while going to school and working full-time.
Flores hopes to continue his education and obtain a degree in Manufacturing after finishing his Machining program at Tulsa Tech.
