December Gold Star Students

It takes a lot of hard work, perseverance and studying to succeed. Caddo Kiowa Technology Center students have all of this in addition to making sacrifices and having the courage to go for a career that is also their passion.

Those in a position of hiring are also well aware that student accomplishments are typically a good indicator of future job performance. For that reason, CKTC students regard the Gold Star Student Achievement Assembly as a crucial part of being prosperous beyond their training.

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. – Pele

The Gold Star Student Assembly is a time to recognize those who are doing great things, one small thing at a time. CKTC student accomplishments include but are not limited to industry-specific certifications and WorkKeys, perfect attendance, contest winners and students of the month.


What is WorkKeys?


WorkKeys recipients have completed their ACT WorkKeys assessments that compare their skills to the skills real jobs require. These scores help employers choose the most qualified candidates for their job openings. These CKTC student achievements are announced during the Gold Star Student Assembly.


What is Student of the Month?


Instructors nominate students who have shown a range of high-quality character traits. A committee then selects an adult student and a high school student for the honor. These CKTC student achievements are announced during the Gold Star Student Assembly.
