Seth Rhodes, a 12th grader from Brattleboro, has been named the Windham Regional Career Center's October 2016 Student of the Month.
Seth was recommended for this honor by Errold Nelson, his Career Center instructor in Agricultural Land Management. Mr. Nelson felt this to be an easy choice, based on Seth's performance in class. "He is maintaining a high "A" average this semester and has turned out to be a terrific representative for both my program and for the Career Center in general. He is a top student in the classroom, at job sites, and at the various FFA functions that are a component of our program." Mr. Nelson went on to commend Seth for the high standard he sets for himself, his empathy for others, and for his support for and encouragement of his fellow students, viewing him as a "role model in the classroom."
Seth took first place recently at the 2016 FFA sponsored state wide soil competition held at Vermont Technical College, earning him a scholarship to attend that college next year should he decide to do so. He plans to major in either mechanical or civil engineering, once he decides on the school he'll attend. He is also a member of Brattleboro Union High School's National Honor Society, as well as the Windham Regional Career Center's National Technical Honor Society.
Seth's prior coursework at the Career Center include all three of its automotive courses. He is concurrently enrolled in Architecture and Civil Engineering this semester, and plans to take Forestry and Natural Resources during the second semester.
