Local student receive UVCC quarter honors

PIQUA — The Upper Valley Career Center has named Fairlawn High School junior, Emily Weigandt, Fairlawn High School junior, as one of its two “Students of the Quarter” for the second nine-week grading period, along with Miami East High School senior, Alyssa Anderson.

These two individuals were selected from a group of eight students nominated by faculty for the quarter honors.

Weigandt, the daughter of Chris and Yolanda Weigandt, is a student in the Interactive Media lab. Her academic and lab instructors tell how Weigandt is a conscientious student with a tremendous work ethic. Just a junior, she has already passed her Adobe certifications and has maintained an “A” average in all of her classes.

Nominations for Student of the Quarter are made by career-technical program instructors. Students’ attendance, citizenship, leadership, and effort are taken into account. In addition, the student’s academic instructors are asked to rate each nominee’s effort during the nine-week grading period.

Students earning an “Award of Merit” designation for Student of the Quarter honors are level one students Andrea Ford, Early Childhood Education and Care, from Fairlawn High School; Courtney Hoehne, Discovery, from Anna High School; and Nick Mowry, Auto Technologies, from Bradford High School.

Level two students recognized for “Award of Merit” are Maelee Enochs, Cosmetology, from Jackson Center High School; Hannah Bixler, Teacher Academy, from Houston High School; and Lexi Hayslip, Interactive Media, from Troy High School.
