Washburn Tech Imagehas a long history of providing technical education in Topeka, tracing its roots back to the beginning of World War II. Legislation passed created a vocational program in the 1960’s which gave college goers a different approach to starting college, besides jumping in head and wallet first. Many students not knowing exactly what they want to do, now had a vessel for testing new waters, without the full financial burden of two years. Kaw Area Technical School provided many students a vast array of technical skills they could acquire. However, being a technical school, some credits would not transfer to four year college progams. 

In 2007,  Kaw Area Technical School would emerge as the new Washburn Institute of Technology.  Washburn Tech is a nationally recognized innovator in career and technical education, and serves as a model for Technical Schools and partnerships with Universities.  Washburn’s Institute of Technology’s Welcome statement reads, “Our unique  relationship with Washburn University gives students the added benefits of starting with technical courses and continuing to advanced degrees while preparing for today’s career opportunities”. Dean of Washburn Tech, Clark Coco, gave a passionate speech about his and the staff’s dedication to the students and the goals of Washburn Tech. 



We've been talking about our new publication, Service Above Self, and now it's live.  In this issue, featuring our new magazine style layout, we look back at our visit from Rotary International President Ron Burton and our club president, David Beck, tells us what it means to our club.  We've got much more in this issue and you'll learn what our goal is for our publication.  Let's just say we set our bar for success pretty high.
