How can a local teacher win a $50 gift card? It’s a simple as attending the upcoming Open House at NTC Claremore.
"Sometimes the most important person in a student’s life is their teacher, and we want teachers to know about all the opportunities that exist for students who come to Northeast Tech,” said NTC Claremore Campus Director Rick Reimer. “We thought the offer of a gift card might be the additional enticement needed to get educators to attend.”
The event is designed to give incoming students a chance to meet their instructor and tour the program, but the community is also invited to attend and gain a better understanding of the many programs available at Northeast Tech.
“I can’t tell you how often people are surprised to learn about the services and training we offer at NTC,” said Reimer. “Our Open House event is designed to provide patrons with an opportunity to tour our facilities and get a firsthand look at our programs.”
NTC Claremore’s Open House will take place from 4-6 p.m. on April 11. Any K-12 teacher who attends will be entered to win a $50 gift card, and an additional $50 card will be awarded to the K-12 teacher with the most students in attendance.
“As a dad of three boys, I can tell you it’s never too early to start planning for your child’s future,” Reimer said. “Do you have a third grader who wants to be a veterinarian? Let them tour our Health Careers Program and get a start on that career path before they finish high school. Do you have a middle schooler who likes gaming and computer programming? Our EAST Program may be a good fit for them.”
Staff members will be available throughout the open house event to answer questions about credits and schedules, as well as college planning. Guests will be able to enjoy refreshments, tour the facilities, meet the instructors, enroll and apply for financial aid.
“Maybe you have a teen who’s interested in going on to college or starting a career, or maybe they don’t have any idea what they want to do yet,” Reimer said. “Whatever the case may be, they will find something that interests them at NTC, and it will be something they can turn into a career.”
Enrollment for the fall semester is already underway, but there are still openings in several programs. NTC accepts high school juniors and seniors, but adult students are also eligible to enroll.
