Nolan is a leader.  He is knowledgeable and confident in what he does.  Nolan comes prepared for class and sets a good example. He helps keep conversations going when others may not be prepared.  He also offers suggestions for students to better understand the content.




Johnny Wiebe - Industrial TechIndustrial Technology: Johnny Wiebe

Johnny works hard in class and has done very well in CTE.  His work in class is impeccable.  He thinks through the parts/designs to best develop/create them and uses those same skills in woodworking and welding.  He thinks in a very logical manner and can articulately describe what he is doing and why. He can be seen in class working with other students.  He leads by example and students are just drawn to his natural leadership.  What I liked the most is that he is also not afraid to ask for help from others when he needs it.  As a leader, that can be one of the toughest things to do, but he seems to have conquered it.
