Tri County Tech Names Kiwanis Club’s October High School Student of the Month
Kassidee Chouteau has been named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s Student of the Month for October. Chouteau, a high school student from Wynona, is currently enrolled in the 2 year Marketing program at Tri County Tech.
The Marketing program stood out to Chouteau as a stepping stone to further her education. Wanting to go into agricultural communications, Chouteau joined the program to get a better understanding of the business side of agriculture. She was recently accepted into Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, Oklahoma where she plans to major in either agricultural communication or marketing.
When Chouteau is not in the classroom she is busy with other organizations, hobbies, and a mix of the two. She is currently a County Officer within 4H holding the office of Vice President. It is within the 4H organization that Chouteau has exercised her leadership skills while also participating in her passion of livestock management and showing.
Adult Student of the Month
Tri County Tech Names Kiwanis Club’s October Adult Student of the Month
Tatum Graham was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s Student of the Month for October. Graham, an adult student, is currently enrolled in the 2 year Cosmetology program at Tri County Tech.
Graham began the program in a pursuit of her passion. “I love getting to know my clients,” she said, “to see how happy they feel after I finish my service”. She enjoys that there is always something new to learn in the field. The creative flexibility and seeing the joy that comes from her clients is her favorite thing about the program.
Outside of cosmetology, Graham loves to work with children. Being an infant instructor at Kids First Child Development Center allows her to do something she loves while making a meaningful and loving impact. With this position, Graham has acquired certifications in CPR, First Aid, and Infant Sleep Safe. Working while attending school keeps Graham very busy, but not too busy to help out the animals. “I like to find snakes in the wild and help them cross the street” she explained. Graham has shown extensive caring through work, school and free time.
After graduation, Graham plans to work in a salon. Having worked in Tri County Tech’s fully operational salon, she is confident she will feel at home in a booth-rent setting. After gaining more experience, Graham plans on becoming a traveling stylist where she can help brides make their dreams a reality.
