Haskell joins electrical powerline technology faculty

05 August 2015

Wanting to teach students what he learned during his 36 years in the field, Jerry Haskell has taken over the Electrical Powerline Technology program in Wichita at Pratt Community College.

Haskell will be teaching high school and college students both classwork and hands-on training at the new Grove Campus, which is located at Wichita Area Technical College.

“I feel like I can benefit the students,” Haskell said. “I’ve been in the business for many years so feel I can teach them things they wouldn’t learn in a book.”

From student to instructor

06 February 2015

After attending Pratt Community College for two years, Ryan Walton said he knew he eventually wanted to come back and teach.

“I had a great experience at PCC,” Walton said. “I knew I wanted to give back to the college.”

Walton graduated from PCC in 2009 with an Associate’s degree as a lineman. He then worked at Kiwash Electric Co-Op in Cordell, Okla. In January, he came back to PCC and is helping teach students to become lineman on PCC’s Wichita campus.

Walton said he decided to become a lineman because both his father and grandfather were electricians.
