 Students Score Big at FBLA State Conference
The long bus ride from Burlington was a happy one.  Twenty-four Career Center students competed against other students state-wide in a number of areas, including accounting, banking, business law, business ethics, finance, public speaking, economics, marketing and more.  They placed in 47 events, bringing home a total of 62 awards, including 18 first place victories, 9 second place wins and 9 third place wins.  Their local chapter earned second place as the state's overall outstanding chapter and first place in the March of Dimes Award. Barb Vinci, Career Center business teacher and one of the FBLA advisors, was especially pleased with the feedback she received about her students while at the conference.  "Everyone told us how prepared, responsible and mature our students were.  They've all grown from the experience and have been challenged to find out who they are and what they're capable of doing.  I found the whole experience to be extremely worthwhile."  Maribeth Cornell, Career Center business teacher and FBLA advisor, couldn't have been more proud of her students' performances at States.  "I was very proud to see them win award after award, but I was more proud of who they have become as young, professional adults.  They work well as a team, interact professionally with others, know how to make new friends, and consistently present themselves as kind and compassionate human beings."  Cornell added that, "Once students get really involved with FBLA, they love it.  Our local towns have a lot to be proud of in these future business leaders, and we appreciate all the support we get from local businesses."

Congratulations to our WRCC March Student of the Month
Greta Larson, a junior from Williamsville, has been named the Windham Regional Career Center's March 2014 student of the month.  Greta is currently enrolled in the Film Making and Digital Editing program at the Career Center and also serves as a student ambassador to the school.  She was nominated for this award by Michel Moyse, her filmmaking instructor.
Mr. Moyse shared that Greta "is an excellant student and a very hard worker who cares deeply about learning.  She takes initiative and isn't afraid to ask for help when needed.  She thinks wonderfully on her feet and bounces back quickly when something unexpected comes her way, turning the situation into a positive.  Betsy Gentile, Workforce Development Coordinator and in charge of the student ambassador program has seen Greta as an enthusiastic spokesperson for the Career Center, particularly in her work with prospective students.
Greta is broadly interested in the field of communications, which she plans to study in college, hopefully in California.  Greta had an internship last year at radio station WTSA where she was given regular air time and learned to edit audio files.
Congratulations Greta!
Electrical Equipment Donation
A portable wiring training unit was built by Brian Tyler of A.L. Tyler & Sons and donated to the Career Center's electricity program.  A multiple number of students can train in residential and commercial wiring at a time.  Mr. Hotin, Electronics instructor, stated that the unit is a real improvement over the current system and will serve as an excellent model for future mock-ups. 
Brian Tyler serves on the Windham Regional Career Center's advisory committee for the electronics program.  He hopes that the training unit will help prepare students for rewarding careers in the field.
The curriculum is part of the WRCC's STEM program for science technology, engineering, and math.  This is part of a national initiative to improve competitiveness in technology and workforce development.
WRCC and Brattleboro Union High School are launching a STEM academy for the 2014-15 school year with an engineering strand that will include electricity amont its course offerings.
