Dillen Paquette has been selected as the Windham Regional Career Center Student of the Month for November. Dillen was chosen by his Forestry Teacher, Errold Nelson.
Students are chosen by their teacher at WRCC that show many character and employable skills within their Career Center programs. According to Errold Nelson, "Dillen understands the meaning of employability skills, showing how he positively interacts with his peers, maintains high integrity for himself and the Forestry program." Nelson explained that "Dillen placed second in the state of Vermont State FFA Soils and Land Judging competition this past fall." Dillen has an excellent work ethic in the classroom and in the forestry field space. He is polite and courteous and willing to help others at any given time throughout the day.
Dillen is also participating in a WRCC cooperative work experience during his day at the Career Center. According to Ray Dunn, WRCC's Co-op Coordinator, Dillen has had superb reviews from Brattleboro Public Works supervisor. Dillen enjoys working around heavy machinery and being outside.
Outside of school Dillen enjoys everything mechanical and loves working on cars and trucks. He is very involved with the winter sport of trapshooting. Dillen explains that he has experienced many rounds of this sport and continues to practice this passion of his. Dillen is an outdoor enthusiast that enjoys hunting and fishing. As a student at WRCC, Dillen is a great addition to our student population. Dillen has enrolled in Forestry, Introduction to Automotive Technology, Agriculture and Land Management, and Cooperative education at the Windham Regional Career Center.
Dillen's future plans are to further his skills in the area of Department of Transportation or Heavy Machinery Operations for a local municipality. I want to congratulate Dillen for a job well done for being selected as WRCC's November Student of the Month.
