Ada — The Pontotoc Technology Center Board of Education voted to recognize Gregory E. Pierce for his years of service with the dedication of The Gregory E. Pierce Seminar Center Thursday.
Area educators gathered to honor Pierce for his 20 years of leading the Center and 42 years of working in Career Tech Education. During his years with Pontotoc Technology Center, Pierce was active on committees that helped direct planning for the school.
He devoted his guidance and support to making the staff, career majors, and business and industry training an integral part of the Ada area. Pierce has seen Pontotoc Tech Center expand not only its facilities but also training, including fire service training for rural fire departments along with a firefighter academy to train new firefighters.
Pierce has also been active at the state level through his involvement with the Oklahoma Department of Career Technology Education and having served on numerous national committees with the Association of Career and Technical Education.
