The Norman Kiwanis and Moore Rotary Clubs recognized two students from Moore Norman Technology Center as March Students of the Month. Regular honors and recognition were delayed due to the campus closing in March due to COVID-19.
Norman High School and MNTC Carpentry graduate Nash Crouch was selected as the Norman Kiwanis Club honoree. He served as district SkillsUSA officer this school year and attended summer leadership with SkillsUSA.
MNTC Carpentry Instructor Bill Hardy said Crouch was a standout student during his time at MNTC, always ready to take on extra projects and help his classmates.
“Nash has a friendly and upbeat personality with a willingness to try new things and step outside his comfort zone. He has interests in a diverse array of activities. He is a natural leader and I know that he will be successful in any future endeavors,” said Hardy.
After graduation Crouch plans to attend Southern Illinois University to study forestry, with later plans involving serving in the military.
Adult Carpentry graduate Elijah Haynes is recognized as the Moore Rotary Student of the Month. He graduated from Southmoore High School in 2019 where he was a varsity wrestler and maintained an A average. At MNTC he was inducted into the National Technical Honor Society and was an active member of SkillsUSA.
Hardy said, “Elijah has an amazingly positive attitude, has a permanent smile and a great work ethic. He is always willing to take on any project, learn new skills and he was my go-to student to train others. He is a highly knowledgeable and talented cabinetmaker with his eye on the future. I would be more than happy to have this young man working in my shop.”
