This week we recognize “Tatyana Leach” from Mr. Goins’ Plumbing II class. Tatyana is a senior at SHS. She has taken multiple CTE and CCP courses, participates in advanced studies and a CTE Internship and is a CTE Completer in Architecture & Construction. “She is outgoing and always willing to go above and beyond. She is determined to succeed”, said Mr. Goins. As a non-traditional CTE student, Tatyana has received her NCCER Certification in Core, Plumbing, and Electrical Trades as well as achieving a Gold Career Readiness Certification. She is also a member of SkillsUSA with plans to join NTHS in the spring. Tatyana aspires to become an Architect while also owning and operating her own culinary business. Way to go Tatyana!
In Mrs. Gates 6th Grade PLTW Gateway to Technology classes, students were selected by their peers. By focusing on one soft skill each week, students vote on their classmate who most strongly demonstrated that skill. Ballots were created using Google Forms and at the top of the ballot, the soft skill is listed with a brief description. During the week of February 1-5, 2016, one student from each of Mrs. Gates classes was chosen who demonstrated the soft skills “accepting responsibility”. Raven Taylor, Stephen Locklear, and Cameron Gorden were chosen by their peers to have demonstrated this soft skill. What a great way for students to be recognized both by their peers and for their soft skills.
