McALESTER — On Sept. 19, Kiamichi Vo-tech Foundation will host the 13th  bi-annual Bill Prichard Memorial Scholarship Dinner.

The dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. at Pete’s Place in Krebs and tickets are $25, according to Kiamchi Technology Center Campus Director April Murray.

She said proceeds go directly to fund student scholarships of those attending Kiamchi Technology Center.

The tickets can be purchased from KTC Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The foundation will honor McAlester Regional Health Center for their long standing partnership with KTC, excellent hands-on training for students and for providing employment opportunities for graduates, Murray said.

The KTC Foundation began in the early 1990s as a support organization for KTC. It’s a 501 C-3 nonprofit organization, which is administered by a volunteer board of directors.

Organizers started the dinner in 1994 to honor Prichard for his support of vocational-technical education.
