February is National Career and Technical Education Month and the Unity CTE teaching team would like to highlight some students that are doing great things in CTE! This week’s Student Leader from the CTE program is Chevy Baxter. Chevy is a junior and son of Troy Baxter. Chevy’s knowledge of woodworking and metal fabrication has helped him to excel in the Tech. Ed. department. He also enjoys sharing his knowledge with students who may be struggling to help them with their projects. Chevy has also excelled in a conservation poster contest hosted by the Polk County Land and Water Resource Department placing 2nd in the county for his age group. Chevy has recently joined the National Guard and will continue to be part of that after high school while either going to college, or working in the trades. Great job Chevy!
Each year the Unity wrestling team gets a chance to help out with the Unity Pre-K "Dad's and Donuts" program. Our wrestlers spend the morning helping Pre-K students whose dad wasn't able to attend. It's a great way to spend some time with the Pre-K students and be positive role models. A big thank you to the Pre-K classes and the Unity Wrestling Team!
