Biomedical Sciences students from CKTC attended the BE4NANO Spring visit at The University of Oklahoma Stephenson School of Biomedical Engineering on Wednesday March 24, 2022.
BE4NANO is a partnership between the Biomedical Science program at CKTC and the University of Oklahoma which focuses on engaging minority and underserved students in the Biomedical Engineering field.
Students were exposed to real-life research in which professors, graduate students, and undergraduate students in the Biomedical Research Lab at OU, demonstrated their lab practices and allowed students to view their microscopic analysis of that research.
This program will also provide a summer research camp to 6 of Caddo Kiowa Technology Center’s Biomedical Sciences students this summer.

Caddo Kiowa Technology Center recently held a pinning ceremony for 15 Practical Nursing students who have completed the program since 2020. Twelve of the students were in attendance and 9 of them have sat for the NCLEX, passed and are working in the nursing field.
The Practical Nursing students complete 60 hours of lab, 82 clinical days, 90 nursing exams and 1 comprehensive final for a grand total of 1,463 hours to become a graduate of the program. This completion allows them to sit for the National Nursing exam aka the NCLEX.
On February 8, 2022 residents in the Caddo Kiowa Technology Center service area will have the opportunity to cast their vote to change the millage rate from the current 1 mil to 5 mills. The passage of this millage would provide stable and predictable funding to ensure the needs of students, teachers and communities are served for many years to come. Funds from this measure will be used to improve current buildings (some more than 50 years old), needing significant investment to remain viable training facilities, improve and/or address issues including safety (improved public safety including installing fire always and sprinkler systems in buildings), childcare center (redesign and modernize of the childcare center to meet community demand and to provide a better, safer and brighter learning environment), fire department support (support the 28 volunteer fire departments in the CKTC district by providing a portable burn trailer that will allow those departments to train locally for structure fees), and both current and future infrastructure/building needs (improved existing infrastructure for the campus including roads, plumbing, electrical, sidewalks, roofs, air conditioners, etc.)
The second question on the ballot would keep the vote in effect unless another election was called to change it. This would eliminate the need to vote on the millage annually.
If you would like to learn more about the upcoming election on Tuesday February 8, 2022 – please visit www.cktc.edu/millage for more information.
The Caddo Kiowa Technology Center’s Truck Driver Training Program recently partnered with the Cordell Masonic Lodge in order to facilitate the donation of approximately 12,000 pairs of sweatpants and sweatshirts (roughly $66,000 in value) to the Oklahoma City Department of Veterans Affairs. They were delivered on Tuesday January 18, 2022. CKTC’s Truck Driver Training Program offered the use of their 53’ van trailer, which was filled completely with the sweats. This donation will provide clothing for many heroes who reside in Oklahoma Veterans hospital across the state.
