A Mentoring Program for Students is Coming to Howard!
We are developing a mentoring program at Howard High School of Technology for our students and we would like your input! We are always striving at Howard to offer the best for our students and mentoring has proven to be a successful strategy for many students. Please take two minutes to complete this short survey. Pride Mentoring Program Survey
This week’s Student Spotlight goes out to an amazing Wildcat, senior Ryan Ulmer! Ryan has been nominated by his Engine Technology teacher Mr. Dean Dickerson.
Ryan transferred into Howard and Engine Technology during his tenth-grade year. Even with getting a late start on the curriculum and techniques, Ryan jumped in with both feet and soon caught up to all the other students. Ryan was so driven to become a technician that he continued working hard until he developed all the skills necessary to enter the work force. Halfway through his junior year, Ryan began working at Suburban Lawn & Equipment. Ryan quickly rose through the ranks to become an everyday technician. It is always a pleasure reading Ryan’s co-op evaluations and speaking with his employers, who rave about him! Ryan has made Howard and Engine Technology very proud. He is the type of kid we all love to come to work for. Both his classroom and lab skills are second to none!
Way to go Ryan, keep up the phenomenal work!! We are all so proud of you!!
