Caddo Kiowa Tech Center student Kenny Pauls placed first at the National Business Professionals of America Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California. To qualify for BPA Nationals, students had to win first, second or third at the state level. After winning at state, Pauls continued to Nationals where he received first place in Administrative Support Concepts. He was also a finalist in ICD-10 Diagnostic Coding and Contemporary Issues.

“We are all so very proud of Kenny! We haven’t had a first place winner at nationals in a few years, so this is a such a huge honor for him personally and also for the school,” said Charlotte Oswald, instructor. “Kenny comes to class every day prepared to go to work. He has definitely put a lot of energy into his studies and his career, and it shows,” Oswald added.

Competitions ranged from individual to team and from objective tests to judged presentations. Nearly 6,000 high school and post-secondary student delegates from across the nation competed in national level business skills competitions and attended leadership development workshops and general sessions.

Pauls, an adult student from Corn, Oklahoma, is enrolled in the Business Information Technology Education program at CKTC. He has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and worked in the field for several years. He has since decided to come to CKTC because he wants to work in medical insurance coding. A natural leader, Pauls is also the BPA President for the CKTC chapter and the recipient of perfect attendance for the entire school year.

“When I first came to CKTC I was amazed at the variety of programs the school offered,” said Pauls. “The teachers and administration make every effort to support and encourage the students in their programs. My BITE instructor, Mrs. Oswald, is always available to help students understand the new material and guide us through the more challenging parts of our studies. She is extremely organized, and her years of experience have been invaluable in planning the various BPA activities and conferences this year,” he remarked.

Caddo Kiowa Technology Center, in partnership with OSU Fire Service Training, provided a 16-hour Vehicle Rescue Technician Level 1 Part B class. A total of 28 total firefighters attend the class from four departments. The class consisted of cutting up 14 cars and one school bus. These vehicles were staged in a way that made the firefighters think about different methods to accessing patients, as well as what their tools are able to do by knowing where and how to cut the vehicles. Hinton Schools provided a surplus school bus which gave the firefighters an opportunity to see the construction on a bus to better help should they ever have to respond to a bus accident.
