**For Immediate Release**
State Regents Recognize PTCI
-released by OPSU Campus Communications 04-12-2006

Goodwell, Okla. - Oklahoma Panhandle State University and PTCI have maintained a close relationship over the past several years in a number of ways. PTCI continues to support scholarships, athletics, and building projects on the OPSU campus and also provides employment opportunities for graduates and students. In addition, PTCI and OPSU formalized a working partnership to produce local video content to air on PTCI’s interactive, digital television network. The long-term relationship between the two has garnered PTCI an Economic Development Partnership Recognition award from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE).

The State Regents honor entities that partner with state colleges and universities and contribute significantly to the school's educational mission while spurring economic development in the region. The OPSU-PTCI video production partnership meets those requirements by providing education for students as well as funding to support the program. Students benefit by learning all aspects of shooting, editing, and producing professional quality video. The program has produced additional coursework and increased PTCI’s output production. Past events covered include area public school athletic events, graduation ceremonies, community celebrations, and documentaries of local interest.

Ron Strecker, PTCI’s CEO, said, “PTCI is very pleased to receive this recognition and grateful to OPSU for nominating us for this award. PTCI believes in the communities we serve, the education of our customers and the economic prosperity of our service territory.” OPSU is proud to combine resources with PTCI in endeavors that benefit both as well as the surrounding community.
