Congratulations to our winners of the Spectrum Cares Scholarship, Elijah Byers, and Teacher of the Year award, Jordanne Thomas, for each winning $1,000.
Elijah Byers comes from our Welding Technology program. The draw results were random, but Elijah submitted a funny and clever video on why he would benefit financially from the prize that you can check out here! --> Elijah submission video
When asked how much this opportunity meant to him, Elijah said, “This meant a lot to me because it made me understand that if I just reach out and do the work, scholarships aren’t that hard to get.”
Grateful for this scholarship; Elijah is excited to get a new welding jacket with the funds!
Jordanne Thomas is an instructor in our Pharmacy Technician program and never imagined how much she would enjoy her experience as an educator. Jordanne contributes much of her passion and success to her coworkers, Talana and Codi, and the Pharmacy Tech students.
The students would agree that Jordanne found her calling, with over %40 of the votes submitted for her.
“Jordanne is not only an amazing instructor but an amazing human. She creates a positive, fun environment everywhere she goes, which draws people to her,” said an anonymous student. “She is patient with her students and is knowledgeable in her profession. Jordanne takes her job seriously, and her priority is the success of her students.”
“As tough as this job can be, it is one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had. The feeling you have when your students become certified and licensed, finish the program, and jump into the industry is priceless. Pharmacy Tech students are the best students!!” said Jordanne.
Jordan plans to share her award with her fellow instructors and students with some holiday fun!
Thank you to Spectrum Credit Union for sponsoring this opportunity to highlight our outstanding student body and Instructors!
