DHS Student Among Technology

For the eighth consecutive year South Carolina’s top career and technology education students will be publically recognized during the opening session of the annual Education and Business Summit on June 27 in Greenville.
These 2010 high school graduates have been designated as “Technology Champions” selected from a pool of nominations from high schools and career/technology centers located in the 12 areas served by the state’s Regional Education Centers.
The honorees were chosen based on factors such as grade point average, attendance, awards and honors, leadership in school and service to the community.  Nominees must be a graduating senior in a career and technology education completer program.
This year’s group includes numerous academic lettermen and students who are in the top percentage of their graduating class.  Many of the Technology Champions are award-winning athletes, student government leaders and are active in their churches and communities.
“We’re proud to salute these young people who rank among the best and brightest career and technology students in our state,” said Dr. Bob Couch, director of the Office of Career and Technology Education.  “They represent skilled technicians in numerous occupational skill areas such as welding, carpentry, automotive collision technology, culinary arts, commercial graphics, information technology, pre-engineering and health science.”
Among  the 12 Technology Champions to be honored  is Marissa S. Davis (Dillon High School, Dillon County Technology Center).
