Mission Statement

The elements of the logo represent the Greek letters Omicron Tau Theta

Omicron, represented by the circle, signifies the cycle of human resources in society. The circle of Omicron is the cycle of life, including the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end. It is human resources that are most valued to us as educators and are a paramount resource in the world of work.

Tau , represented by the "T, " signifies the truth each of us must maintain when working with learners. The value of "truth" within our decisions is of highest importance. We must be true to the goal that vocational education must provide equal opportunities for all people. No program of vocational preparation should be assigned to a class of people because of their handicaps, their backgrounds, or other unique characteristics that will limit their horizons.

Theta, represented by the circle and centered banner, signifies you, the individual. You are the Theta, who is needed to assure that Omicron, the cycle of human resources, and Tau, the maintenance of truth are assured for future generations.

The symbolism of the OTT crest is as follows:

  • Acanthus leaves signify leadership and growth.
  • The burning torch represents a quest for enduring knowledge.
  • The circle represents the environment of human resources.
  • The bridge signifies our mission in vocational education to bridge the individual with society through the productive contributions that each individual can share with others and with society.
