The Osage Nation received a Partners for Progress Award Feb. 19 at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City. The award was given due to the Nation for its training and professional development to its more than 400 employees.
“I think it was quite an honor that [the Strategy Center] did choose us. They are great educators,” said Jana Scimeca, ON Human Resources Compensation Analyst, who accepted the award on behalf of the Osage Nation.
According to Larry Thrash, President of The Strategy Center, the process for selecting award recipients is based on a relationship developed through training and other activities at any of the 29 Career Tech Centers in Oklahoma. Each Career Tech Center selects a successful business or organization they are providing services for. The 29 centers combined are the Oklahoma Association of Technology Centers (OATC). Awards are presented each year during the OATC Partners for Progress Day at the Capital.
The recent construction of the Pawhuska Business Development Center has provided opportunities for the Osage Nation and the Strategy Center to provide professional development and training for the Nation’s employees, tribal members, tribal youth, and the community at large.
