Peyton Boatner – Kiamichi Technology Center, Durant Campus

Third-generation CareerTecher signs on for career in graphic design.

THEN: A single mom who needed a way to take care of her young daughter. No stranger to the CareerTech System, Peyton Boatner was the granddaughter of Roy Boatner, the first director of Kiamichi Technology Center’s Durant campus, and Winona Boatner, an instructor in Kiamichi’s occupational services program. She enrolled in KTC-Durant’s desktop publishing/graphic design career major, where she learned

  • Entry-level design software skills.
  • Office skills that prepared her for the job she has today.
  • The importance of planning ahead.

Her instructor said Peyton has strong creativity skills, and after completing the program she was hired by Sign Depot. There she designed and produced signs and vehicle wraps for the Choctaw Nation, as well as printed materials for numerous businesses in Durant.

NOW: Peyton manages a new Durant company called R&R Signs. She also serves on the Business and Education Council for KTC-Durant’s information technology program.

“At KTC-Durant I learned how to push myself harder, to get the job done. And I learned the importance of teamwork, no matter where you work.”
