September Board Highlights

Kingman Unified School District receives $20,000 in Grant Dollars for Career and Technical Education Programs 

Clare Schroeder, theatre teacher at Kingman High School, was awarded $5,000 to purchase necessary theatre make-up and costume supplies for class projects and storage needs. All students in drama classes, present and future, will benefit.

Alison Sandeen, CTE Career Center/Administrative Assistant at Kingman High School, was awarded $5,000 to purchase items to assist in promoting and recruiting for the CTE programs and to bring public awareness to the CTE and JTED opportunities for students. There are 11 CTE programs at KHS—Agriculture, Sports Medicine, Business Management and Administrative Service (BMAS), Cabinetmaking, Culinary, Drafting, Early Childhood, Photo, Criminal Justice, Nursing and Technical Theatre. Helping students understand CTE and its benefits creates a greater involvement in school functions which can lead to better school attendance, grades, and probability of graduation.

Jenny Harpest, Medical Terminology teacher at Lee Williams High School, was awarded $5,000 to purchase the Hands-On Body System (HOBS). This system allows students to build the body, one part at a time, using non-drying clay. The students use medical terminology to learn placement while building. Being able to see where structures attach gives the students a better understanding of how that particular structure functions and what its purpose is. These building activities help students retain the information much better than repetition and memorization alone.

Gretchen Dorner, Principal of Lee Williams High School, was awarded $5,000 to purchase items to assist in promoting and recruiting for the CTE programs and to bring public awareness to the CTE and JTED opportunities for students. LWHS currently offers six CTE programs—BMAS, Automotive, Graphic Design, Sports Medicine, Nursing, and Technical Theatre.

September WOW Award

A WOW award was presented to Tricia Hanks, Mohave Community College, by Amy West, CTE Director, KUSD. Tricia has done a wonderful job of working with the high school dual and concurrent enrollment students. She is active in making contact with the parents and students as well as communicating with the guidance counselors, administrators and career center employees. Along with this, she has visited classrooms, collected paperwork and helped with Compass testing. Tricia and her MCC counterparts have come to registration and other school events to provide support and promote post-secondary education. She has a wealth of knowledge about the college system and has been willing to learn the ins and outs of the high school systems. Her next endeavor will be more on-campus advising during MCC Mondays.

The Western Arizona Vocational Education public meeting notices are physically posted at 700 W. Beale, Kingman Arizona in the front lobby of the Mohave County Building, main floor.
