High School Student of the Month
Tri County Tech student, Faith Veit, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s High School Student of the Month for December. Veit, a home education junior, is currently enrolled in the Early Care & Education program at TCT and will graduate in May 2022.
“My favorite part of the Early Care & Education program is getting to actually work with the kids at the Child Development Center,” Veit said. “I have always loved kids, plus we are getting hands-on, real-world experience.”
Veit said combining her passion for kids and education can be credited to her older sister.
“When I was 13, my older sister began babysitting,” Veit said. “As my sister began to get busy with school, it was my turn to take over babysitting, and I found a passion for it!”
In addition to being a member of the Early Care & Education program, Veit remains active in her community. She is a member of SkillsUSA at TCT and a Student Ambassador. She is a member of the Bartlesville Christian Home Educators Fellowship, she is an apprentice dance instructor, is a member of Children’s Musical Theatre, and babysits. She also likes to sing, and play both the ukulele and guitar.
“It has been a joy getting to know Faith this year,” said Jolene Bryant, Tri County Tech Early Care & Education Instructor. “She is truly talented and puts 110% into everything she does. She is very giving and has a servant’s heart. I am so glad to have her in the ECE program.”
Upon graduation, Veit would like to attend either the University of Central Oklahoma, or Miami State University, and pursue a degree in Music Education. She would eventually like to move to France.
