Ron Dyer

Ron Dyer, superintendent of Central Tech, with campuses in Drumright and Sapulpa, announced his retirement at the February monthly board of education meeting. On June 30, Dyer plans to leave the district after 34 years of service.
“It’s been rewarding through the years to work with Central Tech staff as thousands of students have had the opportunity to receive a life changing education,” said Dyer.
He was selected by Central Tech Board of Education as the superintendent in 2015. Before taking over, Dyer was the assistant superintendent for 15 years. Prior to that, he worked as a recruiter for the truck driver training program and as a small business instructor.
“I have served an incredible board of education that genuinely loves and appreciates Central Tech and is committed to the leadership of the school,” he said.
Dyer was instrumental in adding Prue Public Schools to the district. Prue is now one of 18 schools served by Central Tech. He commissioned major improvements to the Sapulpa campus which included a new parking lot, exterior building remodel, the purchase of property for future growth, a new business and industry training building, and exterior signage. Dyer managed through a pandemic where he said the staff went above and beyond to make things work in difficult times.
He believes the staff has a true passion for people to succeed. He goes on to say, “They believe in our vision: Everyone achieves success.”
Dyer was inducted into the Drumright Hall of Fame in 2021 and received the Drumright Citizen of the Year award in 2001. He kept the Central Tech tradition of receiving the annual Gold Star award, the Oklahoma Top Workplace recognition for the past six years, and recently added an elite honor being named a National Top Workplace for 2022.
