Troy College & Career High School students, parents, staff, and even alumni welcomed creatively-costumed
preschoolers and children from in and around the Troy School District during its first Trunk or Treat event last Thursday evening.
Preston Martin and Kayla Sage have been named “Students-of-the-Month” for September and October for their academic achievement and growth at Troy College & Career High School. They were honored by the Kiwanis Club of Troy last week.
Martin, a senior from Sterling Heights, is preparing to begin earning college credits at Oakland Community College in January while finishing requirements for his high school diploma. He is considering a career in the skilled trades.
In addition to attending TCCHS, Sage has competed nationally in fencing and has won several awards. She also plans to participate in the school’s dual enrollment program to begin to prepare for a career either in a health or art-related field.
Student Leadership students are hosting a Book Drive through Saturday. Students delivered flyers in the community last weekend and plan to collect books in Troy neighborhoods this weekend. Books in good condition may also be dropped off at Troy College & Career High School and will be given to K-12 schools in Pontiac.
Student Leadership members are also beginning to form a partnership with Oakmont Sterling and Oakmont Manor senior communities as they plan to meet with residents in early November to discuss future collaborative project and program ideas.
Women of Tomorrow will meet next week when they will create and present vision boards depicting plans for their present and future. The goal of the Women of Tomorrow program is to motivate and empower young women by pairing them with highly-successful mentors.
Graduate students of Dr. Julie Lesnik, author and assistant professor of anthropology at Wayne State University, spoke to Environmental Science students earlier in the month about “Insects as Food” and environmental sustainability.
Our first Parent-Teacher Conference evening two weeks ago was very successful and well attended.
