Quarter 2 – Student of the Quarter 2021-2022
Choosing a student of the quarter for Farm Mechanics was definitely a tough decision for Mr. Espling as the class is full of many deserving individuals. This quarter, students covered the important topic of torching setup and procedures. Two students earned the top grade from their quite involved shop torch test. They also shared the same current overall grade and have superior attendance. These two students come to class with a great attitude and a willingness to learn new skills. Because of these factors, these two deserving young men will share the honor of being named student of the quarter for quarter 2. Congratulations to first-year student from Mars Hill, Keynan Campbell and first-year student from Washburn, Parker Sawyer! Mr. Espling looks forward to seeing what next quarter brings!

As usual, we have excellent students in our Engineering Technology program. This usually makes it very difficult to choose one student who stands out above the rest. However, this quarter the choice was easy – Chase Hentosh. Chase is a second-year student who is always willing to go the extra mile. This semester he has successfully completed CIE 101 (Engineering Graphics for Civil Engineers) which is a unique dual enrollment opportunity offered through the University of Maine College of Engineering. His determination and quite no-fuss way of getting things done are remarkable. In addition, he is always willing to help his classmates. One project Chase has been working on is 3D printing a half-scale model of a 1903 Robert’s Marine engine. Chase has been accepted by the University of Maine at Orono majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Given his drive to achieve exceptionalism Mr. Harper knows without a doubt that he will succeed.
Teagen Mastro has been chosen as Mrs. Gross’ Agricultural Science Student of the Quarter. Teagen is a sophomore in the 3-period Agricultural Science block. He has been an absolutely wonderful teacher’s aide during the science fair project setup process. Teagen was ahead of some of his classmates and was shown how to set up his experiment in our upper greenhouse. When it was time for his classmates to get projects going, he rose to the occasion. Teagen escorted several students to the greenhouse and walked them through how to get their plants ready for testing. His assistance was greatly appreciated by Mrs. Gross and Mrs. McCurry. Well done Teagen and thank you!
Mrs. McCurry’s student of the quarter is Trinity Bartlett. Trinity is a second-year student in our programs and comes to us from Washburn. Trinity is an excellent student with a great deal of enthusiasm. She is detail-oriented and helpful and she serves as an excellent role model for her peers. She is always ready to participate in any type of activity and always displays a positive attitude. Trinity is truly a pleasure to have in class!
Each quarter, the Business Department will honor one student with the Student of the Quarter award. It is by no surprise that for Quarter 2, Landon Thompson is the recipient. His positive attitude, determination, and work ethic make him a delight to have in class. He shares his ideas and contributes to class discussions. His assignments are done correctly, efficiently, and in a timely manner. Landon is always pushing himself to do his best. He’s motivated to go above and beyond what his teachers ask him to do. He knows what it takes to be successful in life and has already started working on those habits to ensure his success in the future. He’s a good role model and a positive influence on his classmates. We will miss him next year as he heads to college but know he will do great things! Congratulations, Landon!
Cadence St. Pierre has been selected as the Cosmetology program’s student of the quarter for the second quarter. At a time when school attendance can be challenging, Cadence has maintained the highest level of presence in the classroom, and it has helped her hone fantastic practical skills. She is a quick study and picks up new concepts with ease. When given a new skill to practice, Cadence can readily demonstrate her high level of comfort with that task in short order. From excellent infection control to her steady hand with manicures and nail art, already Cadence St. Pierre is putting her best foot forward. The cosmetology profession will be better for having Cadence a part of it. Congratulations, Cadence!!
