Lindsey Dalot is a senior in the Early Childhood Development program. She has been in the BRCTC program for two years, and plans to attend the early childhood development program at the University of Maine at Orono in the fall. Her teachers said of Lindsey, “she works well with the children and is organized. She is flexible and able to adapt to changes in the schedule as necessary… Lindsey has shown that she has a real passion for working with young children.”

Nathan Simmons is a senior in the welding and fabrication program at BRCTC, who used his welding skills to build a stainless steel boom for his fishing boat this year. According to his instructors, “Nate is respectful, hard working, and pays attention to detail. His class work is always top notch and his future is certainly going to be bright.”

Colleen Kaplinger is a senior in the BRCTC carpentry program. She has been in the program for two years, and successfully competed in this year’s SkillsUSA event, where she placed third and was the only female in a field of 14 competitors. Her BRCTC teachers describe her as a “top student”who has “excelled in class, both academically and in her carpentry skills. She has a great work ethic and is a very solid student.”

The BRCTC Students of the Semester were honored at a breakfast celebration last week.
