Lake Career and Technical Center (LCTC) hosted a Student of the Month luncheon on April 11. Cory Eskridge and Shelby Webster were selected as the recipients.

Cory Eskridge, a senior at Camdenton High School and LCTC Law Enforcement student, was nominated by Cassie Keeney, LCTC counselor.

“Cory is a top-notch student, a hard worker, and most of all a great leader that leaves a positive impact on those around him," Keeney stated.

Eskridge ranks in the top 10 in his class and has a GPA over 4.0 and is a member of the National Honor Society. He has an attendance rate of 99 percent. Outside of school, he not only participates in sports, but also has held jobs at a local restaurant and hardware store. He spends time volunteering through the various clubs and organizations that he is involved in, one of which is the A+ program. Eskridge is the SkillsUSA Vice President and Captain in his Law Enforcement class. He is an LCTC Student Ambassador and was a member of the Constitution Project. Eskridge is goal-oriented and works hard to achieve the high standards that he sets for himself. He is a team player and is able to work with many different people to accomplish whatever task is set before him. He plans to attend University of Missouri to study law. He is the son of Dustin and Sherry Eskridge, and Annie Eskridge.

Webster is a junior at Camdenton High School and an LCTC Health Science student nominated by instructor Monica Duemmel.

“Shelby represents the Student of the Month requirements--punctuality, responsibility, team-work, and work ethic," Mrs. Duemmel said. "Shelby is a leader and team player both in the classroom and at the clinical setting. She does not hesitate to volunteer to jump into situations at the nursing home, and her assignments are always thorough and submitted on time. Shelby is a member of SkillsUSA and is member of the SkillsUSA Quiz Bowl Team.”

Webster is also an LCTC Student Ambassador, National Honor Society member, after-school A+ tutor, and is captain of the Camdenton Lakers softball team. As a softball player, she has received numerous accolades at the regional, district and state level. She is the first Camdenton softball player to be awarded first team all-state. Webster will earn her C.N.A. this year as a Health Science junior. While Shelby is only a junior, her plan is to attend Truman State University on a softball scholarship and focus on premed. She is the daughter of Jon and Amy Webster.
