Quarter 3 – Student of the Quarter 2021/2022
Xavier McAtee has been selected as the PITC’s Business Department student of the quarter for quarter three. Throughout this school year, he has demonstrated all of the positive traits involved with being a successful student. He shows respect for his classmates and teachers, submits his assignments on time while giving his best effort, as well as contributes to class discussions. He is a dependable student who brings humor and fun to our classes all while being kind to everyone. Xavier is a hard worker and a team player, always willing to help others. We will miss him next year as he graduates and attends The University of Maine at Presque Isle, but know that his future is bright and wish him the best of luck. Congratulations, Xavier!
One of the students of the quarter for AgriScience is Rhiauna Davenport. She is currently a student in the morning science block. Rhiauna is an absolute ray of sunshine with a wonderful sense of humor. She is a highlight in a classroom and leaves a daily reminder on Mrs. Gross’ whiteboard for all to have a wonderful afternoon. If fellow students need support, she is one of the first to offer help. Rhiauna has grown as a student this year as well. She is not afraid to ask for clarification and always does her very best work. She has shared with Mrs. Gross that next year she may be trying out Early Childhood or Cosmetology as possible pathways. Either program will be lucky to have her!
Mrs. McCurry’s student of the quarter is Kaiden Rosi-Carney. Kaiden comes to us from Washburn and is in his second year of our program, taking Animal Sciences and Natural Resources. He also serves as treasurer for our FFA chapter. He brings a wealth of knowledge about the outdoors and a great deal of enthusiasm to our program. He is always willing to take on new responsibilities and actually conducted a round of sophomore tours when Mrs. McCurry was not in school. He has earned an FFA Proficiency Award in Agricultural Processing for his after-school job at Mainely Mexican. Kaiden provides an excellent example of an enthusiastic, successful student in the agriscience program.
Congratulations to Kyle Thurston for being named the Building Trades student of the quarter. Kyle is a second-year student from Washburn in the Building Trades program. He has proven to be a very dependable, reliable and knowledgeable student on class projects. Classmates don’t hesitate in asking for Kyle’s help on projects. Kyle represented the Building Trades program at SkillsUSA in Bangor this year competing in the cabinetmaking contest. Kyle plans on attending NMCC next year in the Building Construction Technology program.
Congratulations to John Coffin, a first-year student from Mars Hill in the Industrial and Farm Mechanics program, selected for student of the quarter. John has superb attendance and is devoted to the work that he does in the classroom and in the shop. He has great attention to detail and is a pleasure to work with. John is a team player who is willing to help out with whatever is needed on any given day. Along with a positive attitude, John’s work is done in a timely and neat manner. I hope to see John back next year to tackle some more challenging live-work projects and bring in some of his own! Keep up the great work!
As usual, we have excellent students in our Engineering Technology program and Marshall Dick is certainly one of them. Marshall always surprises us with interesting projects and ideas and he always wants to learn. Whether it’s designing a laser-cut dash panel for a go-kart project or simply doing classwork he always strives for exceptionalism and to do the best job possible. He is always patient and considerate of others and willing to help whenever needed. It’s a true pleasure having Marshall as part of the class and he truly is deserving of student of the quarter.
The early childhood program is pleased to announce Morgan Seward as our quarter 3 student of the quarter. Morgan is a second-year student and a senior from PIHS. In the lab, she can appropriately evaluate the room and determine where she is needed without being told. She has also developed great relationships with the kids, and it is clear she enjoys her time with them. Next year, Morgan will be attending the University of Maine at Orono to major in psychology.
Tia York, a senior at Presque Isle High School, has been selected as the cosmetology program’s student of the quarter for third quarter. Time and again, Tia has demonstrated perseverance in her approach to her theory studies and practical work. From timeliness of turning in assignments to applying her unique flair to theory projects, Tia’s work has been fantastic. In the cosmetology lab, even when faced with learning challenging new skills, her determination to succeed is evident. Tia already displays great skills in haircutting and hairstyling. Her personality and laugh are contagious to the whole class and bring humor and light to our afternoons. However, it may just be the quiet example she displays to her peers and instructor by consistently tending to her infection control duties and daily salon chores, that has been truly impressive—a team player for sure. Congratulations, Tia York, on a job well done!
