October Students of the Month
Two seniors, Jordan J. ( Perkiomen Valley HS) and Vanessa M. (Souderton Area HS) are the October 2021 Students of the Month at North Montco Technical Career Center.
Jordan is being recognized for his outstanding work in North Montco’s Automotive Technology program. His interest in the automotive field began at a young age. From Hot Wheels and video games, to pop culture, Jordan knew he wanted to pursue a career working with cars. He heard about North Montco when a school counselor visited his school and discussed the opportunities available. He jumped at the opportunity to take a tour of the school and attend the open house. When he saw the equipment in the Automotive Technology program, he knew it was where he wanted to be.
While in his automotive class, Jordan enjoys being around classmates that share the same passion for cars and he appreciates the opportunity he has to apply the skills he learns on actual cars.
“Jordan has been a student in the North Montco Automotive program since 9th grade,” said Mr.Simes, one of North Montco’s Automotive Technology teachers. “His hard work, positive attitude, and higher-level thinking make him a perfect candidate for this award.”
Jordan was recently accepted into the Automotive program at Penn College of Technology. With this additional training, he looks forward to becoming an automotive technician.
His advice to other students is to “try a program at North Montco; you may surprise yourself and like it.”
Vanessa is being recognized for her outstanding work in North Montco’s Allied Health program. We previously highlighted Vanessa as she shared her experiences with her classmates in the Protective Services program.
Since many of her extracurricular activities and jobs centered around helping others, she applied for North Montco’s Allied Health program to gain as much experience as she can while making connections for her future career. Vanessa is a volunteer with the Harleysville Fire Department, an Emergency Medical Responder with Spring Mountain Ski Patrol and a medic assistant with Temple Med Flight.
“When asked to share her experiences with other students, Vanessa did not hesitate, “ said Ms. Bossert, North Montco’s Allied Health teacher. “Her focus on her career path has made her an asset to the school and to the Allied Health program.”
Vanessa is planning to pursue a career in nursing and may pursue a military career.
