Evans Offers Personal and Professional Training for GirlTech Programs

Evans provides soft-skill training and consulting services to GirlTech programs housed in Career Technology Centers in the state of Oklahoma.

CHICKASHA, OK (May 9, 2007) - Canadian Valley’s GirlTech program concluded the year recently with a luncheon celebration, followed by an assembly for GirlTech program participants, as well as female students in all CVTC classes.


            The luncheon featured Allyn Evans, who spoke about “firsts” in women’s history, and encouraged the women in the room to be leaders in their career fields. Evans’ work centers on her desire to help other women meet the challenges of successful living.


             GirlTech mentors and CVTC instructors of GirlTech students also attended the luncheon. Advisor Gay Pettit recognized and presented certificates of appreciation to mentors and mentees.


            An assembly followed the luncheon, where GirlTech student Felicia McAfee presented a monologue to the group, which emphasized the importance of self-acceptance.  


            Evans also addressed the group of young women, speaking to them about the power of choice, hope and thoughts and words. She explained how all of these things affect our lives each day and in the future.


            Pettit was pleased with the end-of-year celebration. “I was so happy with the turn out we had both at the luncheon and at the assembly,” Pettit said. “I want all of these girls to not only believe in themselves and their abilities, but also commit to the goals and careers that they really want, and not just what society expects of them.”

GirlTech offers female students opportunities in a variety of activities designed to provide awareness of the trade and industry, information technology, scientific research and engineering fields. It also allows students to develop career skills and pursue further exploration in these fields. The program emphasizes career development, communication skills, assertiveness skills, time management, course advisement and portfolio development.

“I really enjoyed this year’s program, especially having former Delta and Arvin women who are now pursuing non-traditional careers,” Pettit said. “It was great to have a mix of adult women and high school students participating in the program.”

Throughout the year students had the opportunity to participate in job shadowing, mentoring, career exploration and personal development.
