School briefs - Hermitage Technical Center


In the months of November and December, Hermitage Technical Center classes have been focused on finishing up the curricula before winter break. Many of the classes are working hard to wrap up what they can in these final few weeks in hopes that in the New Year, the February air will breeze in some great mid-term test scores.

Also this month, Hermitage Technical Center was updated on the results of the canned food drive. The food drive was a success. Students collected more than 1,800 non-perishable food items and clothing for needy folks. The contest had a winner for both the A.M. and the P.M. classes. Barbering won the A.M. competition with 151 items and Criminal Justice won the P.M. competition with 270 items.

Currently the HTC Family and Tech Ethics Society, along with their cohorts in Cosmetology, are collecting toys for the Toys for Tots Foundation, a program that collects toys around the holiday season for children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts.

Among other happenings at Hermitage Tech at this time, the first newsletter of the school year, designed and produced by the Graphics Communications class, is in its final proofing stage and is expected to publish after the winter break.
