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

Tri County Tech student Olivia Wilt, daughter of Mike and Sherri Wilt, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s Student of the Month for September. Wilt, a High School student, is currently enrolled in the 11-month Teacher Prep program.

Wilt decided to attend Tri County Tech to pursue her passion for teaching, “I want to be a teacher because of my teachers, especially my elementary school teachers, who have made such an impact on my life and that’s what I want to do for other kids. I want to be able to be a stable person in their life and let them know they can accomplish anything if they put their mind to it.” she explained. Wilt’s favorite part about Teacher Prep is her teacher, Mrs. Stephens. “She is the best at what she does, she is so caring and so kind, and she cares about every step of the way… she is a person you can talk to when you need to.”

Also having a passion for the arts, Wilt is involved with Jazz Choir, NHS, and Theater. She is currently in the Musical, Oklahoma! where she will play Laurey! Along with participating in the fine arts, Wilt is also a 3rd year All State Member, a National Honor Student, Bartlesville Student of the Month, and is the Secretary of 4H.

Having been accepted into OSU, Wilt plans to enter their School of Education with a major in Elementary Education. “Clearly, Olivia has made the very most of her years in school establishing positive and healthy habits, and she has directed her energy and talents toward helping and inspiring others,” said Shelly Stephens.

Tri County Tech Names Kiwanis Club’s September Adult Student of the Month

Tri County Tech student Brianna Brown was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s
Student of the Month for September. Brown, an adult student, is currently enrolled in the 11-month Practical Nursing program.

Brown began the program because of her love of nursing and helping others. “The patients I work with impact and inspire me. I love the opportunity for growth and advancement in the field,” she said. Her favorite part about the Nursing Program is the amount she has learned and opportunity to be a part of the Tri County Tech community.

Outside of the Nursing Program, Brown is also involved with Journey Home, has participated in the Bartlesville Regional United Way’s Day of Caring, and also Spirit Church’s Day of Hope. The Journey Home has a special place in Brown’s heart because she lost her mother to cancer. Although her mother didn’t make it to Journey Home, the current director did take care of her mother.

“Cancer research is moving so fast, it would be so cool to be a part of finding the cure,” Brown said. After her graduation in May, Brianna plans to get her RN degree, specializing in Oncology, and work in cancer research and clinical trials. “Brianna has demonstrated a tremendous work ethic both in class and at our clinical site rotations… She is eager to learn and shows great leadership potential,” said Amanda Vaclaw, one of Brown’s Practical Nursing Instructors.
