12+ - Senior Spotlight

"Brinna Waymire is a student in the 12+ Program at Warren Central High School. She works at Miller’s Merry Manor, as a Dietary Assistant in the cafeteria. She has worked with this company for three years. She continues to work the front lines during this time as a full time employee. She also maintains her E-Learning studies and joins all her Zoom meetings where she continues to make her classmates laugh. When you talk to her about her job, she will tell me, “someone has to be there”. This is her, always, with her peers, teachers and friends. She has a tough exterior but the biggest heart of anyone I’ve met. As her teacher, I’m so proud of her. She works on the frontline everyday to be there for her coworkers and those residents, I admire her confidence and strength!." By, Mrs. Dena Condra, 12+ Instructor

Early Childhood - Senior Spotlight

Mia Jones is a second year senior working toward completing her CDA credential. She is planning to attend Ivy Tech to become a pediatric nurse. Her experience with children at the Early Childhood Center has helped to reinforce this goal and given her experience working with children. Mia is such an asset to our classroom team, she is always smiling, is very organized, and was always aware of deadlines and course requirements. She completed her CDA binder with little guidance and the highest degree of academic competence. I have no doubt she will earn her CDA credential as soon as those testing centers open up again. Her favorite memory of Early Childhood Education was volunteering time at the Fire Safety Olympics hosted by the Indianapolis Fire Department.

Jayla Coe has been in the Early Childhood Education program for two years. As soon as she is able to she is going to schedule her Child Development Associate exam and obtain her CDA Credential! When she grows up she would like to teach Early Childhood Education, either pre-k or kindergarten. She plans to attend Ivy Tech for her first two years of college then transferring to complete her Bachelor's degree in ECE. Before COVID 19 she spent most of her time balancing school and two different jobs. Even so, she was quick to volunteer at ECE events outside of school. In her free time she understandably loves to sleep and relax. Her favorite ECE memory was when her class did body paint outside. The students put hand prints on her clothes. She also enjoyed helping to chaperone when her class went to Gymnastic Unlimited, they all had a blast together

Fashion and Textiles Maximizes Opportunity to Assist

Mrs. DeMoss has been working with students that have access to sewing machines in her Fashion and Textiles program to make masks for individuals in need during these challenging times. To date, Mrs. DeMoss and her daughter have been able to deliver over 150 masks to help curb the spread of Covid-19! Below are two photos of masks made by Mrs. DeMoss and Kelsie Gibbs. Keep up the great work!
