Lake Career and Technical Center (LCTC) hosted its Student of the Month luncheon on March 14. Two students, Kylie Dannatt and Courtney Meyers, were selected as the recipients.

Kylie Dannatt, a senior at Camdenton High School, was nominated by Chuck Poe, LCTC Graphics instructor.

“Kylie always steps up to the plate and tackles anything that needs to be done. She is one of the main facilitators in my graphics class and helps me keep everything on track. Kylie doesn't like it when work is below par or late so she always strives for excellence and goes above and beyond normal expectations. Kylie is a great mentor and teacher to my other students and her work ethic is outstanding. She is an excellent planner, organizer, facilitator, and communicator.”

Kylie is Vice President of FBLA, a member of SkillsUSA, and is also in the A+ program. She has assisted in running the jumbotron during football season, designed shirts for CADV, and has placed in multiple FBLA competitions. Kylie plans to attend University of Central Missouri and her goal is to work for Hallmark.

Kylie is the daughter of Kevin and Carleen Dannatt.

Courtney Meyers is a senior at Camdenton High School and a LCTC Health Science student nominated by instructor Shelly Bonds.

Bonds stated, “Courtney is a hard worker, motivated, takes initiative, and always goes above and beyond the assigned task or assignment. Courtney is very responsible and disciplined with great integrity. My only regret is that she was my student for just one year.” Courtney is a member of SkillsUSA Quiz Bowl Team, Lady Laker Soccer, and A+ Program. She has volunteered for Little Laker Soccer and blood drives. After earning her C.N.A. at the conclusion of her Health Science program, Courtney plans to start her post-secondary education at Ozarks Technical Community College in Springfield while also working as a C.N.A. Her ultimate goal is to transfer to Missouri State and go through their physical therapy program. Courtney is the daughter of Jamie and Mindi Meyers.

The Osage Community Elks Lodge #2705 sponsors the Student of the Month award. Nova Dunn, from the Elks, was present at the luncheon and was able to acknowledge the students’ accomplishments.
