High School Student of the Month
Tri County Tech Names Kiwanis Club December High School Student of the Month
Tri County Tech student Savannah Hagar was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s
Student of the Month for December. Hagar, a Bartlesville High School student, is currently enrolled in the two-year cosmetology program.
“I have always been interested in hair and makeup,” said Hagar, “Tri County was the perfect opportunity to learn how to do it professionally.” Hagar attends the afternoon cosmetology class where she perfects her craft both in theory and practice. The program doubles as a full salon offering students real-world experience with real world clientele. Hagar is also the treasurer in the program, she helps keep officer meetings in order and works to organize program parties.
Beyond the walls of Tri County, Hagar is heavily involved at her high school. She holds office in Student Council, is involved in National Honor Society, as well as being voted in for senior homecoming court. Through these positions, Hagar has been able to volunteer in the community. She has participated in events such as Miles for Mammograms, Day of Hope, and volunteers at local elementary schools. Outside of academia and community service, Hagar spends her time hanging out with friends, playing with her dog, and attending church.
After Hagar graduates from Tri County Tech she plans on continuing her education at Oklahoma State University. “Once I get my cosmetology license I hope to get a job in the industry,” Hagar explained, “It will help me pay for college.” Hagar plans on majoring in architecture. “Savannah is an educator’s ideal student. She is prompt, prepared, engaged, skilled, kind, and a team player” stated Melanie Walker, Hagar’s program instructor. “I have never seen her stray from professionalism, academics, or engagement.”
