April Gold Star Student Assembly

April 18, 2017 Susan McElhaney 1 comment

At first they’ll ask you why you’re doing it, then they’ll ask you how you did it.

 

At Caddo Kiowa Technology Center, our students make no secret of how they do it. It’s evident in the pride they take in their work. They reveal it by showing up. And they prove it with hard work and perseverance.

 

At CKTC, our students succeed and that is unmistakable as students get recognized each month at the student achievement Gold Star Student Assembly.

 

“We started doing the assembly a couple of years ago,” reported Organizer Ronda Weaver. “And it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. It is simply amazing to see all of what our students are achieving year after year!”

 

The Gold Star Student Assembly is a time to announce student achievements. Accomplishments recognized may include, but are not limited to perfect attendance, contest placements, students of the month, program-specific certifications and WorkKeys.

 

What is WorkKeys?

 

WorkKeys recipients have completed their ACT WorkKeys assessments that compare their skills to the skills real jobs require.  These scores help employers choose the most qualified candidates for their job openings.

 

What is Student of the Month?

 

Instructors nominate students who have shown a range of high-quality character traits. A committee then selects an adult student and a high school student for the honor.
