High School Student of the Month
Tri County Tech student, Erin Cary, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s High School Student of the Month for September. Cary, a Bartlesville High School junior, is currently enrolled in the Creative Marketing Communications program at TCT and will graduate from TCT in May 2022.
Cary said the design aspect of Creative Marketing Communications and the projects they were going to have the opportunity to work on is what originally interested her in the program
“My favorite part about my program is literally everything,” said Cary. “I wasn’t really passionate about anything prior to joining this program and now that I am here, I love what I do.”
In addition to being a member of the Creative Marketing Communications program, Cary remains active. She currently serves as DECA president, is a member of GSA at her high school, and also is a member of the Cherokee Nation. She has also been selected for the Superintendent’s Honor Roll and has placed second at the state DECA competition for Hospitality and Tourism Research Operations. She also serves as a library assistant at the Bartlesville Public Library.
“Erin always comes to class with a smile, nothing but positive things to say, and lots of encouragement,” said Mr. Gerth, Creative Marketing Communications Instructor. “Since being in the class she has really opened up, and even taken on leadership roles.”
Upon graduation, Cary would like to attend either the University of Oklahoma or the University of Arkansas Fayetteville, majoring in advertising.
Adult Student of the Month
Tri County Tech student, Nita Sexton, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s Adult Student of the Month for September. Sexton, a Bartlesville resident, is currently enrolled in the Licenced Practical Nursing program at TCT and will graduate from TCT in December 2021.
“My favorite part of the LPN program is pharmacology,” Sexton said. “I had trouble in the beginning, but we were all able to focus and push through the course.”
Sexton said she has been involved with healthcare since 2013.
“I finally decided that I could do more,” Sexton said. “So, I applied to the LPN program, received an interview, and was selected to join the program.”
In addition to being a member of the LPN program, Sexton is also a member of HOSA, participates in Listening Angels, and is the lead medication aide at her job.
“Nita always has a positive attitude and is engaged in both the classroom and clinical settings,” said Kebi Allen, Licensed Practical Nursing Instructor. “ She consistently asks questions and dives into the content to learn the “why”, not just the “what” of nursing. She is a pleasure to have in class and a great student example of the Tri County Way.”
Upon graduation, Sexton would like to work as an LPN for a year, and possibly go back to school for her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing.Back to top
