High School Student of the Month

Tri County Tech student, Logan Yardley, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s High School Student of the Month for November. Yardley, a Bartlesville High School senior, is currently enrolled in the Pre Engineering program at TCT and will graduate in May 2021.

“My favorite part of the Pre Engineering program is the ability to run with your ideas, be creative, and solve problems,” Yardley said. “This really lets us grow and expand our knowledge of engineering.

Yardley said that his first interest in engineering came from his love of being outdoors. He said he wants to be able to help preserve the environment as much as he can, in order for future generations to enjoy being outside as much as he does.

“Logan is years beyond a high school student in temperament, attitude, and maturity,” said Brenda Jackson, TCT Pre Engineering Instructor. “He is attentive, and always takes projects and learning steps further than required. He inspires his classmates.”

In addition to serving as the reporter for the Pre-Engineering program, Yardley is involved in various school and community activities. He has attended mission trips internationally, serves in his local church, and has maintained a perfect grade point average throughout high school.

Upon graduation, Yardley would like to attend Oklahoma State University and pursue a degree in, renewable energy or environmental engineering.

Adult Student of the Month

Tri County Tech student, Lacey Calhoun, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s Adult Student of the Month for November. Calhoun, a Bartlesville resident, is currently enrolled in the Cosmetology program and will graduate in December 2021.

“My favorite part about the Cosmetology program is meeting all of the students, meeting new people, and my instructors are wonderful,” Calhoun said. “I love seeing the clients come in, and helping them with any of their skin issues from acne, to age spots. I want them to be able to feel refreshed.”

No stranger to TCT, Calhoun graduated from the Dental Hygiene program in 2004. Because of her positive experience then, she knew she wanted to come back to TCT when she decided to make a career change.

“Lacey is a very professional student,” said Melanie Walker, Tri County Tech Cosmetology Instructor. “She is eager to learn, kind, a team player, and goal-oriented. I look forward to Lacey entering our industry. I know she will be a success.”

In addition to the Cosmetology program, Calhoun remains active in her home life, and community. Calhoun enjoys spending time with her six rescue dogs, making memories with her family, attending church, and exercising in her free time.

Upon graduation, Calhoun plans to open her own spa. She said would like to focus on estition work and massage therapy, and possibly offering eyelash extensions.
