May 9th to the 13th was the Business Professional of America National Leadership Conference in Grapevine, Texas, just outside of Dallas. Students that attended were Senior, Brandon Bailey, and sophomores Bryce Welk and Katie Swain. They were accompanied by BPA Sponsor, Scott Schramm, and his wife, Anne.


To qualify for NLC the students had to rank in the top of the State of Indiana in their respective contests during the State Leadership Conference held in March. Brandon competed in both the Computer Network Technology and the Network Administration Using Microsoft competitions. Katie competed in Fundamental Accounting and Bryce in Computer Security. Brandon made it on the national stage with a 7th place finish in Computer Network Technology. 


Students had opportunities to compete in other open events, attend breakout leadership sessions and general assemblies, network with students from around the U.S., and explore places in Dallas. 


BPA would like to thank Flexaust for their financial support this spring to help make this trip possible!

BUILDING TRADES OPEN HOUSE

 

The Building Trades program of the Warsaw Area Career Center will be hosting an OPEN HOUSE from 4-6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, 2018.

The house is located at 584 E. Riviera Dr. Warsaw, IN. 

Watch for OPEN HOUSE signs.

This is the 36th year for the Building Trades Program.  Twenty-two students, under the direction of instructor, Eric Taylor, worked on the home owned by Chris and Reily Frankum.   The students were involved in framing, roofing, siding, window and door installation, insulating, drywalling, painting, trimming and concrete work.

The home is a one-story ranch style house with approximately 2,800 finished square feet. The home is equipped with a high-efficiency gas furnace and central air.

The students that worked on the home are Jonathan Aca, Jose Alvarez, Noah Boren, Christian Carnegie, Cole Davis, Zachary Dutton, William Dye, Austin Fisher, Bryan Gonzalez, Zachary Howard, Ian Jones, Reality Lawson, Trevor Lomperski, Jesus Lopez, Mauricio Medellin, Carlos Medoza, Tristan Mobley, Christian Moyotl, Armando Munguia, Hunter Scott and Jared Teeple.


Ten students from Warsaw’s Orthopedic and Advanced Manufacturing Training Center graduated last Friday at Notre Dame from Ivy Tech Community College’s Warsaw Site. Seven of those students earned a certificate in Machine Tool Technology, and three, who earned their certificate last year, earned their technical certificate this year, which means those students have the first year of their two-year associate degree finished.

The students earning their certificate are Jacob Barker, Jameson Baker, Tristyn Lewis, Matthew Shoemaker, Derek Hunsberger, Travis Hyden, and Tyler Hitchcock. The students earning their technical certificate are Craig Ronk, Miguel Juarez Cervantez, and Larry Hollar.

The OAMTC provides college-based high school dual credit classes, which means those 10 students earned high school and Ivy Tech credit simultaneously. They represent high schools including Tippecanoe Valley and Warsaw Community high schools.
All student expenses were funded by the following companies: DePuy Synthes, Instrumental Machine & Development, Kiwanis Club of Warsaw, Medtronic, Paragon Medical, Precision Medical Technologies, Kosciusko County Community Foundation, and Zimmer Biomet.

The Warsaw Area Career Center is so proud of these students and greatly appreciates the wonderful partnership we have with Ivy Tech Community College & the OAMTC. 

Recently Michelle Hollar, mother of graduate Larry Hollar, sent us this message:
"Larry has earned 28 college credits through the Career Center!!!  He will graduate from WCHS in 2018 and with all his dual credit & he will graduate Ivy Tech in 2019!   She was so grateful for all the money this program has saved her family as well as giving Larry a profession to pursue." 

Congratulations to all of our PMT graduates!
