Community Impact Award in education presented to Metro Tech

OKLAHOMA CITY – For the third year in a row, Metro Technology Centers received the Community Impact Award for the Education division from the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium. A virtual awards ceremony was held on Sept. 22 and recognized educational organizations that demonstrated an ability to engage students and faculties in initiatives that significantly promote ethical behavior on Oklahoma campuses.

“This year was a very close competition with many others who received honorable mentions, which makes it that more special to honor Metro Tech for the third consecutive year,” said Mary Bower, executive director for the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium. 

Superintendent Aaron Collins, Director of Grants Karla Graham and recently retired Bertha Robinson accepted the award on behalf of Metro Technology Centers. “Building relationships in the community is core to our vision,” said Collins. “Providing professional development training for faculty and staff help individuals prepare for life through quality career training. We are grateful for our employees who model the way, every day, for our customers, staff and students.”

The consortium started in 2004 with like-minded businesses who wanted to bring an ethical component to the community and is the gold standard for businesses in Oklahoma. The guiding principles of ethics are responsibility to self and others, leading with integrity and inspiring trust. More can be found at www.okethics.org.
