student news and activities

WWTC is always proud of our student's acccomplishments and many of our students have used WWTC as a stepping stone to a great career. Here are the stories of just a few.

 

student of the month

Students of WWTC have the opportunity to compete for the honor of Student of the Month. To be nominated a student must have excellent attendance and grades, participate in classroom and community service activities, and demonstrate leadership and cooperation within their class. They will prepare a brief essay as to why they deserve the honor and participate in an interview with a non-partial panel. Monetary awards from the WWVTC Foundation and gifts from sponsors are presented to both the winner and the runner-up each month. The winners of Student of the Month are eligible to compete for the Student of the year designation.


national technical honor society

To be eligible for membership in the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS), post-secondary students must maintain no less than a 95% average in their technical subject and attend full time. High school students must also maintain at least a 3.5 grade point average at their home school. Members can not have more than four absences during the semester that they are being evaluated. The purpose of the NTHS is to promote the ideal of honesty, service, leadership and skilled workmanship among technical students of America.

Faculty Advisors: Crystal Orr, Jodie Dunn, Karla Smith and Brenda Wingo.

leadership team

Being selected to serve on the Gold Star Ambassador Leadership Team is an honor at Wes Watkins Technology Center. To be considered, students are nominated by their instructor and then must go through an interview process. Many apply but only a few are selected. As a GSA, students attend leadership training classes and assist with meetings, the job fair, 8th grade and sophomore tours, Student of the Month assemblies and many other events throughout the year. In March they attend Leadership Day at the Capitol with other leadership groups throughout the state and are able to sit in on House and Senate sessions as well as meet with their legislators. The GSA's are also responsible for planning and presenting the Veterans Day assembly each year.

Faculty Advisors:
Robin Hinkley, Allen Smith, Billy Moore, Cheryl Strech, and Mike Lindley
