The Bath Regional Career and Technical Center (BRCTC) recently announced their Spring, 2022 Students of the Semester. These included four Lincoln Academy students. Their instructors described each winner in their own words.

The winner in Culinary Arts is senior Alana Brown. Instructor Elizabeth Baldwin wrote, “Alana is eager to learn with a deep work ethic. She gets along with all her peers and is willing to help others when needed whether it is in the kitchen, classroom, or on the computer. Alana has natural insights when it comes to baking. Her talents are a gift she brings to the program. She worked hard at the wedding cake competition at Skills and came home with a silver medal! She is a true pleasure!”

Junior Oliver Hunter was honored for his work in Welding. Welding instructor Jamie Carter wrote, “Oliver is one of those pleasant surprises I’ve received this year. Quiet and somewhat reserved in the shop, he has become much more competent and comfortable with his new environment. His work is nothing short of outstanding and his attention to detail is excellent. Oliver has a calm reverence that is somewhat uncommon amongst his peers and I believe this quality will not only keep him humble, which is an excellent quality and will also allow him to take on the inevitable failures a welding student will encounter in their journey for perfection without losing faith that perfection maybe just one more practice assembly away.”

Junior Kevin Crossley was the junior honoree in Electricity. Electrical Instructor Landon Hixon wrote, ”Kevin is a valuable asset to the Electrical program. He works well independently as well as he does collaboratively. He is creative. Kevin is quiet but a bull worker. It is a pleasure to have him in the class.”

Gavin Pinkham was the senior nominee in Electricity. Mr Hixon said, “Gavin is a great electrician. He is attentive during the long book work time in class. He is also a leader in the lab section. Always positive, Gavin makes the class a more enjoyable place for everyone. I am glad to have had Gavin in the class.”

“BRCTC is a great resource for Lincoln Academy, and our students thrive there,” said Lincoln Academy Head of School Jeffrey Burroughs. “We are proud of all of our BRCTC students and congratulate these four for these well-earned honors.”
