Spartan College graduate Frank Hayes currently works as a Chiller Plant Operator at Haynes Mechanical and finds it to be a rewarding career. Before that, Frank had ten years of military service and forty years as an aviation mechanic.
Frank loved the hands on approach he received at Spartan. Getting his hands dirty every day in the lab was one of his favorite things about taking the HVAC program at Spartan.

Spartan College graduate Kymberly Logan grew up on a farm in a small Kanas town. Her farm had a runaway in her backyard, and she’s been flying in airplanes since she was six months old. From that moment on, she had a love for all things aviation.
In 2004, while visiting Spartan College with her grandmother, Kymberly took the steps to pursue a career in aviation. With her grandmother’s blessing that she could do anything she put her mind to, Kymberly chose Spartan, and graduated.
Today, Kymberly is currently working as an Aircraft Mechanic at Elite Aircraft Service in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Every day when she comes to work she is challenged by her job and feels empowered by her career than began at Spartan.
Watch Kymberly’s Spartan College testimonial in the video below:
Spartan College instructor Alan Rapp, grew up in the air force and has been around airplanes his entire life. Because of his upbringing being around airplanes, Alan acquired his private pilot’s license.
To be closer to his family, Alan started working for Southwest Airlines loading bags. While working at Southwest, he developed an interest in becoming a line mechanic. Earning his A&P certification, he moved up to a line mechanic at Southwest. When he’s not at Southwest, Alan dedicates his time to teaching Spartan students as a way to give back to a career that’s given so much to him.
Right after my graduation from Spartan back in 2009 I landed a Job with AAR CORP in Oklahoma City and not even three months into it I got call back in to service again with the U.S Army Reserves. After a long ten month deployment to Afghanistan I was happy to know that my job was held by AAR and currently I’m working for the company in Oklahoma City. I’m working on gaining more experience as an A&P Mechanic and at the same time thanks to my training at Spartan and the people and friends I met I obtained my Private Pilot License and currently I’m working on getting my instrument rating with the help of my friend and also a graduate from Spartan Erwin Winkler. My ultimate Goal is to become a Commercial Pilot and work for the Airlines. Because of the great memories with the faculty and the friends I met at Spartan I’m looking forward to maybe enroll once again at Spartan College after I complete my commercial and CFI rating to go for the Bachelors Degree.
