For more than 30 years John Hunter served Tulsa Tech, and his impact is far-reaching.
A dedicated educator, John Hunter’s tenure at Tulsa Vo-Tech (Tulsa Tech) began as an Instructor, then Financial Aid Coordinator, Curriculum Director and Deputy Superintendent.
He started his work as a Cashier-Checker program instructor on the Lemley Campus in 1974. Hunter worked to adapt the curriculum after recognizing the need to assist adult learners. This effort helped increase the number of adult training programs from six in 1974 to more than 50 in the present. In 1983, he contributed to the creation of the financial aid department, helping adult students with tuition costs and increasing access to training options. He also created Tulsa Tech’s first part-time class catalog, now our Adult Career Development catalog.
In 2000, he was promoted to Deputy Superintendent and served for three years before being named the Superintendent at Moore-Norman Technology Center.
In 2012, following his retirement from Moore-Norman, he again answered the call to serve Tulsa Tech, this time as Interim Superintendent. Hunter’s impact on Tulsa Tech is immense, touching nearly every aspect of the district, and can be seen each day in the number of adult students the district serves.
