High School Student of the Month

Tri County Tech Names Kiwanis Club February High School Student of the Month

Tri County Tech student Owen Andersen was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s High School Student of the Month for February. Andersen, a senior at Oklahoma Union High School, is currently enrolled in the Construction Technology Program.

Construction first piqued Andersen’s interest at an early age. “At first I wanted to do engineering, but after thinking it over for a long time I decided that wasn’t me,” explained Andersen, “I want to be in the workforce, on the job site.” Andersen currently interns at Crossland Construction, applying what he learns in the Construction Program. His favorite aspect of the program is the ability to work in both the classroom and the shop.

Outside of the construction program, Andersen spends his time at Crossland Construction and offers a helping hand around his grandpa’s land. “I spend Sundays on my Pop’s property working and then I go to church Sunday night,” said Andersen. With his church, Andersen goes out in the community to help those in need.

After graduation, Andersen plans to attend Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology while working his way up Crossland Construction to eventually become a supervisor. Andersen is well respected among his peers, both in and out of the classroom, and is an emerging leader. “Owen is a great student who pushes others to live up to their potential,” said Jason Murphy, the Construction Technology Instructor, “He is always ready to help no matter the situation”.

Tri County Tech student Adrian Perez was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s
Student of the Month for February. Perez, an adult student, is currently enrolled in the Construction Technology Program.

Perez began the program due to the limitless possibilities in construction, “We go beyond the textbook,’ he explains, “we get exposed to a lot of different things out there in the shop”. Perez’s favorite part of the Construction Program is working with his hands and getting to apply what he learns in the classroom in the shop.

Outside of the classroom, Perez can be found on the soccer field. “I was recognized as one of the best players in the league,” said Perez. Beyond sports, he also enjoys spending time with his family, working on cars, and helping out in the community. Alongside his construction classmates, Perez participated in last year’s Day of Caring.

After graduation, Perez plans to begin working for Crossland Construction. “I got the job at Crossland with the help of Tri County,” said Perez, “Mr. Murphy helped me tremendously”. Jason Murphy, the Construction Technology Instructor, has been very impressed with Perez and the way he carries himself around the classroom. “Adrian is an excellent student, he is always on time and has a positive attitude”.
