Students of Excellence

What it takes to become a Student of Excellence? Grade point is the easiest basis for student selection. However, schools often use a combination of academic achievement, leadership skills, and school or community involvement for selection criteria. These decisions are the responsibility of each district so that students are selected by those who know them best.

These awards were given out on April 27th at the Rivers Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud.  This is an annual event by Resource Training and Solutions.

This year, four East Central students received this honor.  Pictured below (from left to right) are Mark Schmitz, Anthony Bliss, Cassie Gaede, Sadie Shervheim, Seth Clennon, Stefanie Youngberg and Jeannette Kester.  Missing is EC Senior John Wagner.

Career Exploration

Students in Mrs. Finley’s ninth grade Future Prep Class are hard at work exploring careers.  Thus far, students have learned about potential careers and have been working on developing their job seeking skills. 

Practice is an important part to being prepared for the career search process; therefore, students are participating in many hands on experiences.  Included in their learning has been developing resumes and cover letters, completing applications, participating in mock interviews, and more.  These opportunities are allowing for the students to practice before many of them will start searching for their first job. 

These wonderful experiences could not have happened without the support of our awesome community.   A special thank you to Craig Thorvig, Chris’ Food Center, for speaking to students about workplace ethics.  Thank you also to the many community members that volunteered to interview students during mock interviews.
