Explore the History of Gabbart Communications

 

Gabbart started out as a network management company serving schools and corporations in Southeastern Oklahoma.
A major turning point took place in the fall of 2006 when Mark McPherson, Superintendent of Atoka Public Schools,
called a meeting with Teddy Gabbart to enlist and entrust him with building their first district website. Mr. McPherson’s
only requirement was that it be easy enough to use so his teachers could add content and maintain the website without
having any technical skills or ability to do so. By meeting this one requirement, Gabbart Communications path changed forever.
