Following the April meeting of the Dodge City Community College Board of Trustees in which the trustees voted unanimously to eliminate the college’s Electrical Power Technology program, negotiations began between DC3 and Pratt Community College.

Dodge City Community College administration initiated discussions with officials from PCC administration and EPT faculty regarding assisting current DC3 EPT students to complete their remaining requirements for their certification or associate of applied science degree.

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.
