CVTC’s Winters honored

Dr. Greg Winters, Superintendent

Canadian Valley Technology Center’s Dr. Greg Winters has been named Superintendent of the Year by Oklahoma School Public Relations Association.

Winters chairs the Oklahoma CareerTech state marketing committee and has been an active supporter of communications and marketing efforts throughout the state. He is completing his 39th year in education.

Winters, a Piedmont resident, has been the technology center’s superintendent for the past six years. He is one of only two to have served as superintendent at three different technology center districts.

Following the May 31, 2013 tornado, which destroyed Canadian Valley’s El Reno Campus, Winters led the charge to relocate 19 full-time programs, several dozen short-term courses and 130 faculty and staff. School started on time just 75 days after the storm.

The El Reno Campus will be rebuilt over much of the next two years with an anticipated fall 2016 grand re-opening, thanks to the successful passage of a recent multi-million dollar bond issue. Only the school’s Business and Industry Services division could relocate to the El Reno site just a few months after the storm.
