Mrs. Lovely’s student of Quarter 3 is Briana Gilson. This is Briana’s first year at PIRCTC and she is loving her time with us. Currently she is enrolled in Principles of Accounting 1, Business Math, Personal Finance, Introduction to Computer Applications, and Introduction to PC Operating systems. She also spends most of her study hall periods with the business department in order to work ahead in these business classes and offer help to her peers when they need it. She is happy that she can work in classes that will help her in her future college career in Business Administration through Northern Maine Community College. She will graduate from high school with 14 college credits towards her major. Briana has been a fantastic addition to our class rooms. She is happy to be here and lends a hand wherever she is needed. Often ahead in her work, she will help others with content that they may be struggling in, including students she may not know very well. She is motivated to do well in her classes and maintains her high-honor GPA. Her hard work leaves with her daily as she works most days after school and on the weekends. Briana was a member of SkillsUSA this year, competing against others in the state of Maine at the yearly convention. She worked hard on her piece with her teammates, creating content that was clear, well-developed and attractive to others. Briana is a very organized individual with charisma that makes her easily approachable and simply easy to be around. I know she will be a desirable addition to a highly functioning business someday. I am looking forward to seeing her progress. Congratulations on earning Student of the Quarter for Quarter 3, Bree!
