The word cloud below shows the most common words used in the responses from over 100 students and our staff as we begin the process of drafting a vision statement.
LycoCTC Rotary Student of the Month
The Lycoming Career and Technology Center is pleased to announce Hughesville High School senior Ryan Steele as Rotary/LycoCTC Student of the Month for September, 2022. Ryan, son of John and Sherry Steele of Unityville, PA, has received this honor based upon outstanding work ethic, attendance, behavior, community service, and the recommendation of his LycoCTC Culinary Arts instructor.
Mr. Anstadt, his teacher, had this to say about him. "Ryan has been in the Culinary Arts program for threee years and over the course of these three years I have seen tremendous growth in him. Ryan has shown growth not only in his culinary skills, but most importantly his leadership skills have grown leaps and bounds. Ryan, on a consistent basis, has come to class everyday with the willingness to do his best and to lead by example. These traits have helped not only Ryan but the students in the class. Ryan has taken the skills he has learned in the program and has put them to use in the industry."
Ryan is employed at both the Silver Thorn Restaurant and G and T Country View Restaurant. He is also an active member of St. Mark’s Church of Lairdsville, PA. Following graduation in June, 2023, Ryan hopes to continue culinary studies.
We are excited to welcome new teachers to LycoCTC this school year. Mr. Brandon Flannery is teaching our Computer Systems Technology class on an interim basis. He is a Montoursville HS and LycoCTC graduate with industry experience that includes the BLAST IU. Mrs. Amanda Wallace joins our Health Careers Program as the instructor for Level I students.
