Cameron university hosts STEM summit

LAWTON, Okla._ Business, government and educational leaders came together Wednesday at Cameron University for the Southwest Oklahoma STEM Summit.

Lawton's high schools have been recognized nationally for their accomplishments in science, technology, engineering and math education.

Barry Albrecht, president of the Lawton-Fort Sill EcEconomicevelopment Corporation, says excellence in education and growth in economic development go hand-in-hand.

"While we are building are STEM programs here in southwest Oklahoma, we are building a reputation," says Albrecht. "A reputation that we are now calling Lawton, Oklahoma's STEM city."

Albrecht says he thinks more students are embracing STEM programs because they recognize how many jobs in the future will require knowledge of those fields.
