Students of the Quarter November 2016
The Student of the Quarter for the Business Program from Mrs. White’s class is Rachel Driscoll. Rachel attends PIRCTC from Washburn District High School and is a second year student in the Business Program. She comes to class each and every day prepared to work, always with a smile on her face. Last year, Mr. Curtis arranged for Rachel to take additional Accounting courses through NMCC during her time with us this year. Rachel is doing an online Accounting class during part of her afternoon at PIRCTC. She is also taking Introduction to Business and Customer Service, and will take an additional online offering through NMCC starting very soon. During the three period course offering, Rachel is taking four classes. She is very diligent to complete all of her work at an excellent level, with an A average in all of her courses. She is not afraid to take work home with her to ensure that she is meeting the rigorous demands of this schedule. Upon graduating from high school, Rachel will have a total of 35 college credits because of her efforts in our dual enrollment program, and from taking courses offered at her high school. Not only has Rachel saved herself tons of money, she will also finish a dual-major at NMCC in just a year after high school. She plans to attend NMCC and major in both Business Administration and Accounting.
Laura McKenna is Mr. Curtis’ student of the quarter. Laura is enrolled in Principles of Accounting I, a 4-credit college course offered through NMCC. Laura is President of FFA and is active in the local 4-H club. I understand that she plans to major in Accounting and she is off to a great start. She is a very nice young lady and an outstanding student.
The student of the quarter for AgriScience is Kaleb Stitham. Kaleb has been a student in our programs for the past three years and during that time has developed into a mature and exceptionally motivated young man. He is an excellent student, often demonstrating a gifted understanding of complicated concepts and making connections and insights uncommon to a high school student. While maintaining an active sense of humor, Kaleb is kind and supportive to his fellow students. He has become an extremely active and effective FFA member during his junior and senior years. He is always ready to volunteer his time and the vast array of equipment he has available to him to support FFA activities. We have enjoyed Kaleb as our student for the past three years and look forward to seeing what the future holds for him.
Jacob Kinney is Building Trades student of the quarter. Jacob is a first year student in the Building Trades program. Jacob has proven to be a very dependable and reliable
student when it comes to projects in the construction trades. He is always the last one to stop working and clean up. All of his work is done to a high standard and to the best of his ability. Jacob works well with all of his classmates and is a hard worker.
Early Childhood Education is pleased to announce that Kathleen Haney has been selected as Student of the Quarter for Quarter 1. Kathleen is a junior from Easton High School. She is a first year student in the program. Kathleen is spending her first semester lab at Pine Street Elementary School where she works with preschool children in a fun, kind, caring, and consistent manner. The children look forward to lab days and having Kathleen there to work and play with them. She consistently gives her best effort with a smile on her face. She presents herself in a very professional manner. She is kind and thoughtful to her peers as well as to young children. Congratulations, Kathleen.
The student of the quarter is a first year student from Ashland in the Farm Mechanics program; he is a hard working, self- motivated young man. He helps out the other students when he has finished his tasks in a timely manner. This kind of dedication is looked upon very strongly in Farm Mechanics. Being able to work situations out for yourself and problem solve the job at hand will bring this young man far in life! Looking forward to the rest of the year with Mason Deabay.
All the students in Mr. Harper’s Drafting & Design Technology program are wonderful, bright, intelligent young adults. However, this quarter one individual stands out for his exceptionalism. Jonah Clark is a young man we are proud of. Every day Jonah works quietly and consistently to achieve exceptionalism. He strives to go above and beyond and do just that much more than what would be termed by many as “good enough”. Jonah is always willing to tackle difficult projects and tasks and always practices a very strong work ethic; submitting projects on schedule, making the best use of time and working well with his classmates. We are proud of Jonah and all his accomplishments and know with certainly that he has a strong foundation for success.
