Lake Career and Technical Center (LCTC) hosted its Student of the Month luncheon on February 15. Two students, Sydney Coffey and Coleman Warren, were selected as the recipients.

Sydney Coffey, a junior at Camdenton High School, was nominated by Officer Chris Edgar, LCTC Law Enforcement instructor. Officer Edgar stated, “Sydney rose to the top of the law enforcement classes becoming the rank of Lieutenant and became one of the strongest leaders I have seen. Sydney works well independently but is also someone everyone wants to collaborate with on projects. She is especially mature and resourceful and pours her heart and soul into preparing for any competition – such as the Constitution Project where she won first place in the state as the trial attorney.” Sydney is also a member of SkillsUSA, Key Club, Sign Language Club, and National Honor Society. She has participated in many community service activities such as the Salvation Army bell ringing during the holiday season. Sydney’s goal is to continue her education at Missouri State University and study Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement. Sydney is the daughter of Michael and Sherrie Coffey.

Coleman Warren is a junior at Camdenton High School and a student in the Marine and Power Sports Technology program. Cole was nominated by his LCTC instructor, Mr. Scott Miller. Mr. Miller stated, “Cole is my “go to” guy! He is the most reliable student and is the type of student that will do anything for anyone. He goes above and beyond for himself and his fellow classmates.” Cole is an officer for SkillsUSA and a member of the SkillsUSA Opening and Closing Team. Cole is also in the A+ program and most recently volunteered his time at the Alzheimer’s Walk. Cole plans to attend State Fair Community College. Cole is the son of Jerry and Melissa Ahrens.
