Charlton Carlos Lester is a big believer in education. In fact, his belief in education is so strong that in 1998 he founded Omnitech Institute in Decatur, Georgia in order to change the lives of adults in the metro-Atlanta area. A short time after founding Omnitech, he received accreditation from the U.S. Department of Education. Since that time, Omnitech has produced thousands of graduates who are changing the world in the fields of technology, entertainment, business, and more.
Charlton Carlos Lester believes that education can impact lives in some major ways. Here are just a few examples of how Omnitech graduates have impacted the world around them:
- Omnitech specializes in information technology (IT) systems. Though the face of IT has dramatically changed since the late ‘90s, the significance of IT has remained unchanged. Omnitech IT graduations have been involved in fields ranging from accounting to healthcare. The work of Omnitech graduates in the healthcare industry has helped make drugs and healthcare more affordable for those who need them. Also, better organization of healthcare records has saved countless lives.
- Many recent IT graduates have moved into the field of audio engineering. Charlton Carlos Lester is a big believer in the role of audio engineering and art in the world. Lester, like many of the students in his new Digital Media Program, believes that art is an essential part of the modern world. Graduates from Omnitech’s audio engineering program have been able to record and propagate culturally significant art/music that would have otherwise gone unheard.
- By founding Omnitech, Charlton Carlos Lester was able to create an education opportunity for thousands of students. Many of these students, in turn, have been able to create jobs for thousands more. As someone who comes from an impoverished background, Charlton Carlos Lester understands the value of a job and the power education has to create jobs.
