Quarter 4 – Student of the Quarter 2021/2022
We are pleased to announce that Jackson Maynard is student of the quarter for the Engineering Technology program. In addition to his great work in the classroom, Jackson has earned a Pulp & Paper scholarship through the University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation. He has also successfully completed MEE-120 (Engineering Graphics & Computer Aided Design) which is a dual enrollment course offered in collaboration with the University of Maine College of Engineering. This Fall Jackson will be attending the Mechanical Engineering program at the University of Maine. We are very proud of Jackson and all his accomplishments as well as his hard work and willingness to help others.
Erinn Kelly has been selected as Mrs. Gross’ student of the quarter. She is currently a junior from Presque Isle and a first-year student in AgriScience. Erinn has thoroughly enjoyed her experience this year. She has taken a dual enrollment class with UMPI, worked on breeding fish, raising plants, and participated in FFA. She and two other students participated in Agricultural Sales at the FFA State Convention. They used some of the dried herbs grown in our greenhouse and created an essential oils product. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Erinn was the only group member present at the competition to present and sell their product. She rose to the occasion! Erinn also participated in Nursery and Landscape Management and was on the winning team and placed first as an individual. Mrs. McCurry and Mrs. Gross are excited that Erinn plans to come back next year to take more programming during her senior year.
Congratulations to Lane McCrum for being named the Farm Mechanics student of the quarter. Lane is a first-year student from Mars Hill with an amazing attitude. Lane has near-perfect attendance, excels in all aspects of the program, and is eager to help other students when needed. One can tell by his work ethic that he has had a great interest in the Aroostook County way of life, growing up on his family farm doing what they can to feed American families. He recently attended the FFA State Convention held in Presque Isle, competed in many competitions and was even elected to be the State FFA Vice President! Keep up the great work and we hope to see you back in the Farm Mechanics program next year!
Isabelle Dionne has been chosen as Mr. Bragan’s quarter 4 student of the quarter. Isabelle is a first-year Building Trades student who attends Presque Isle High School. She has proven to be a very dependable and reliable student when it comes to class projects. Isabelle is a pleasure to have in class as she is a hard worker and a team player. Most recently, Isabelle earned a certificate for her excellence on the NOCTI test. Congratulations, Isabelle!
Hunter Reed is Mrs. McCurry’s student of the quarter. Hunter is a student in the morning science block and, throughout the year, he has displayed exceptional maturity and seriousness about his work in our program. Hunter completed a detailed and involved science fair project in which he investigated the effects of a high protein diet and vigorous exercise on weight and muscle mass gain. He presented his project at the FFA State Convention and placed #1 in the state. Hunter is always ready to learn, asks questions when he needs to and is helpful and respectful to his peers and his teachers. It has been a pleasure to have him in our program!
The cosmetology program proudly announces Madison Ouellet, a senior from Easton High School, as our fourth-quarter student of the quarter. From trichology to principles of hairstyling to haircutting to nail care, Maddie has worked hard to maintain top-notch scores in all of her theory units. In the salon lab, she has proven to be a detail-oriented stylist, drawing inspiration from various sources both on the web and in daily encounters with people she observes. Most recently, having learned the basic haircuts that will propel her into a successful transition to working on clients at the post-secondary level, Maddie took a basic bob to the next level in designing an innovative formal style appropriate for a prom. I have no doubt that Maddie’s future in cosmetology will be bright. Congratulations, Maddie!
