INDIANA KIWANIS CLUB :: Wayne Obitz, president, called the July 31, 2012, weekly meeting of the Indiana Kiwanis Club to order.
Jessica Tanaka, regional director of compliance for the Wyoming Technical Institute, described the school and her position to the Kiwanians. She has been with the school for six years and visits their other campuses in Laramie, Wyo.; Daytona Beach, Fla.; and Sacramento, Calif.
The Burrell Township campus has approximately 1,300 students representing all 50 states. About 20 percent of the students are from Pennsylvania and students usually spend eight hours a day for nine months on their major. WyoTech is proud of its 90 percent graduation rate and 90 percent job placement rate.
As a proprietary school, WyoTech is heavily regulated by the government.
Tuition for most nine-month programs is around $29,000.
Students are heavily regulated with dress code and have high behavior standards. There is a no tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol. The school is also proud of the President's Award they recently received for community service.
Joyce Scibek won the 50/50 drawing and correctly recited the Kiwanis defining statement. She also drew the ace of hearts and won the jackpot.
