Students of the Month

Culinary and Business Student

Sarah Forrett, a senior from Dummerston, has been named the Windham Regional Career Center's February Student of the Month. She was recommended for this honor by her two business teachers at the Career Center, Barb Vinci and Maribeth Cornell.

Sarah is the current president of the school's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter. Her business teachers shared that Sarah stepped into that role and brought a very strong and dedicated team forward this year, resulting in her team being named the most outstanding chapter of the year for the state of Vermont. Sarah placed first in the state competition in both accounting and business ethics; third place in business communications; and fourth place in help desk. Sara has been appreciative of the opportunities she's been provided through her association with the Career Center. She feels that her business courses have taught her real life skills that she'll rely on both in her personal life and in her future career.

Sarah will be attending Southern New Hampshire University in the fall, with a major in Business Administration.

Manny Vargas was named the Career Center's March Student of the Month. Manny is a junior who resides in Brattleboro. He was nominated for this honor by his Culinary Arts instructor, Chef Carl Warner. Chef Warner shared that "Manny is the first to enter the kitchen every day. He has accumulated a lot of skills by doing a new project daily. He works well with teachers and with his fellow students. He carefully seasons his food and he has shown a real concern about making good, quality meals."

Manny said that he's really enjoyed his culinary courses at the Career Center. "They're really fun. I get to make food and hang out with my friends at the same time. I get to work with a lot of different types of food that I normally wouldn't have at home, like BBQ ribs one day and the Thai food lunch that we recently prepared."

Manny plans to attend college after graduation from high school, but isn't sure yet whether he'll focus on culinary arts as a major, since he really hasn't settled on a career path just yet. He is hoping to play college football, though.
