Troy College & Career High School – Tuesday, May 15, 2018
- Numerous Troy College & Career students participated in mock job interviews with professionals from a variety of fields last Friday. An unexpected bonus was that one student was offered a job and others were presented opportunities for continued interviews with businesses that may possibly result in summer or fall employment.
- Out of over 100 district grant recipients, Renee Boogren, science teacher at TCCHS, was honored as “Innovator-of-the-Year” by the Troy Foundation for Educational Excellence last week. Ms. Boogren received funding for hands-on equipment for her Astronomy class and was most recently selected to attend this year’s REACH workshop at U of M to study genetics. Her environmental science students just finished their River Rouge water quality study and will share data with other participating high schools and Michigan Rouge Educational Project personnel in conjunction with U of M Dearborn. Boogren also teaches biology lab classes at Wayne State University.
- Lauren Baker, Elisha Griffin, and Riley Palmarchuk were recognized earlier today by the Kiwanis Club of Troy for their academic achievement and growth at TCCHS.
- Taylor McCaskill officially signed with Delta College last month to play basketball as he enters his freshman year. He was the second student in the history of the Athens varsity basketball team to break the 1,000-point scoring record. Taylor plans to begin studies at Delta for a career in sports management.
- The Women of Tomorrow met this morning and engaged in improvisational activities to create a foundation for managing unique communication situations. Last month, seniors were honored for their achievements at the annual metro Detroit Women of Tomorrow graduate luncheon at The Henry Hotel in Dearborn.
- Students and staff volunteers plan to beautify the childcare play area on Saturday when they spruce up landscaping, replace mulch, and add decorative paint during the 6th annual Spring Clean-Up.
