Fort Cobb, OK – May 9, 2014 – Studies show that students decide as early as elementary whether or not they like math and science, or are even good at it.
Biomedical Sciences is just one of the courses that CKTC has implemented with the intent to capture the interest of those students who show an interest in math and science.
“The purpose of Project Lead the Way programs,” reported Sherry Jackson, PLTW Biomedical Sciences and Medicine instructor, “is to spark a lifelong passion for math and science.”
Her latest class is evidence of that. All four of her students who are graduating this year have committed to a math or science related degree program at the college level.
In the fall Chelsee Aguirre, a Hydro-Eakly senior will start her freshman year at the University of Oklahoma in the Nursing program. Jade Goombi, a Gracemont senior, has enrolled in Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Nursing program. Paige Milner, a Gracemont senior, has also enrolled at SWOSU, going the Pre-Veterinary Medicine route. And Jayme Byrd, a Carnegie senior, has committed to SWOSU/CKTC’s Occupational Therapy Assistant program.
“Students come here and explore careers in biomedical sciences and build a foundation for success in a world where their talents and skills are in high demand,” said Jackson.

Chelsee Aguirre (Hydro-Eakly), Jade Goombi (Gracemont), Paige Milner (Gracemont) and Jayme Byrd (Carnegie) take their training at CKTC to the next level by enrolling in related fields at the college level.
