Students of the Month

Tri County Tech student, Brianna Mumma, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s High School Student of the Month for December. Mumma, a Bartlesville High School junior, is currently enrolled in the Teacher Prep program and will finish in May.

“My favorite part about this program is the little family we have created,” Mumma said. “There is so much support and we are learning so much about becoming teachers and what it really takes to become educators.”

Mumma said she was originally enrolled in the Marketing program at TCT. However, the week before classes started Mumma knew she should be and decided to switch to pursue her passion within the Teacher Prep program.

In addition to the Teacher Prep program, Mumma stays involved. She holds the position of Secretary for the CTSO executive board, she has been on the honor roll for Bartlesville High School multiple times, is a varsity cheerleader for BHS, attends her youth group every week, and volunteers in the children’s ministry.

“Mumma is an amazing role model,” said Shelly Stephens, Teacher Prep Instructor at TCT. “She is attentive to instruction, diligent and competent in her work, and has a friendly and welcoming attitude towards me and her classmates. When we have worked in the field she has been a terrific representative of TCT.

Upon graduating from Tri County Tech, Mumma plans to complete high school in May 2021, with 15 credit hours for college. She plans to attend the University of Arkansas and obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, with a minor in either math or English.

Tri County Tech student, Tabby Roach, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s Adult Student of the Month for December. Roach, a Delaware resident, is currently enrolled in the Cosmetology program and plans to graduate in May 2020.

“I have always wanted to do cosmetology,” Roach said. “I finally got to a point in my life where I could do it.”

Roach said everything about the program sparks her interest, especially when someone walks in, and then is able to walk out with an increased self- esteem. Increasing confidence in someone is something she is passionate about she said.

In addition to the Cosmetology program, Roach remains active. She has participated in Day of Hope, she visits the Lighthouse every month to spread joy, and participated in the Strand Up campaign and Medical Mission at Home event.

“Roach is an incredible role model and diligent student,” said Lisa Meyer, TCT Cosmetology Instructor. “ She is a remarkable learner being as she is self- motivated and always challenges herself to be at her very best. She makes us laugh every day, and brings a joyful, positive energy to those around her.”

Upon graduating from Tri County Tech, Roach plans to continue to expand her clientele base. She has secured a position at “Head to Toes” in Dewey and would like to open her own salon within the next five years.
