David T. Clark is an honor graduate and completed the Basic Shielded Metal Arc Welder Technical Certificate of Credit through participation in OFTC’s Dual Enrollment program. He plans to continue at OFTC this fall to complete his Welding and Joining Technology Diploma. 

The Brandon T. Lawrence Scholarship,  founded by the Douglas Price family, was established through the OFTC South Foundation in memory of Brandon Timothy Lawrence who lost his life on February 6, 2004, in a car accident. Because of Lawrence’s zest for life, high academic achievements, and love of people, his family established this scholarship. 

The scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating senior from Wheeler County High School who will enroll at OFTC following high school graduation. 

The purpose of the scholarship is to award a student from WCHS who has a genuine desire to complete a diploma or degree in technical education through attaining academic excellence while exhibiting outstanding moral character and a determination to succeed in life.
