Six Live Oaks students were chosen by their instructors as Students of the Month for February. They were nominated based on their academic achievements, career lab accomplishments, and overall performance.
They are: Kelly Ewing, a senior from Turpin in the Digital Arts and Design program. Wrote Schlosser: “Kelly is in her second year of the DAAD program. In all this time, Kelly has been one of my most reliable students. She has always worked hard in my class to produce good quality work. She doesn’t go out of her way to show off her work. So, often, she flies under the radar. Nominating her for Student of the Month is a way to reward her for her efforts.”
Karissa George, a senior in the Sports Rehabilitation and Therapy program, from Amelia. “Karissa has shown enthusiasm and passion for the Sports Rehabilitation and Therapy program,” wrote instructor Scott Proscia. “She has truly grown in this profession and will continue to succeed at the post-secondary level.”
Brooke Hall, a junior from Batavia in the Digital Arts and Design program. “Brooke is one of those silent do-gooders,” wrote instructor Adam Schlosser. “She completes all of her assignments on deadline, submitting high-quality work each and every time. She’s respectful and a pleasure to have in class.”
Seth Leonard, a junior in the Computer Service Technician and Networking program, finished fifth in the BPA regional Computer Security competition. Along with good academic performance, Leonard works with visitors from other schools who are considering attending Live Oaks.
Jacklyn Mowery, a junior from Milford in the Sports Rehabilitation and Therapy program. “Jackie has done an amazing job in the Sports Rehabilitation and Therapy Lab,” wrote Proscia. “Her willingness to learn and succeed at her chosen profession has made her shine among her peers. Her work ethic is second to none, and she is always seeking to learn more.”
Zach Sporing, a senior from Milford in the Computer Service Technician and Networking program. Sporing had a very strong performance at the regional Business Professionals of America (BPA) competition, including a first place award in the PC Servicing and Troubleshooting event, which qualifies him to compete at the state level. In addition to his strong academic performance, Zach also has near-perfect attendance in school this year.
The students were honored at a luncheon at the Live Oaks campus.
