Winding Down? Not at KACC

Congratulations Students of the Quarter and.....Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Some may think we are winding down as the school year is almost over: but no, not us!

There's no better time to write this article than on the first day of Teacher Appreciation Week. Our faculty and their teacher assistants make a wonderful #TeamKACC!  Our Board President, Dr. John Plan said it well in a congratulatory email: "Happy Teacher Appreciation Week" from all of us on the Board.  I truly appreciate their efforts, hard work, and most importantly, their dedication to all of our students who attend the Career Center.  They are making a difference in the lives of young adults, and that should be celebrated.  I am enjoying getting to know them and working to ensure they have the support they need to develop successful students."

With the collaboration of this fine team, lots of great things are happening in and about our classrooms and hallways.  Final exams are being taken, portfolios wrapped up, scholarship applications are being submitted, and a whole lot more. Keep an eye on our website and social media outlets. We'll try to keep you as up to date as we can.

Thanks to Olivet Nazarene University for allowing us to utilize Kreske Auditorium for our annual Student Recognition and Awards Night on Tuesday, May 14, at 6:30 p.m.  There are many awards and scholarships to be given away.  Because of the phenomenal support of our local businesses, the scholarships have grown in number and amount awarded.

Teachers have selected their Students of the Fourth Quarter.  These young men and women have exemplified character, hard work, good attendance and of course, classroom and hands-on skill development.  Please join me in congratulating these students!
