High School Student of the Month
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.
