Norman Kiwanis & Moore Rotary Clubs Select April MNTC Students of the Month

The Norman Kiwanis and Moore Rotary Clubs recently selected two students from Moore Norman Technology Center as April students of the month.

Moore High School senior and MNTC Pre-Engineering student Olivia Mitchell was selected as the Norman Kiwanis Club honoree. She is a member and historian for MNTC’s chapter of the National Technical Honor Society, is a member of the Technology Student Association and competed in SkillsUSA competitions. At MHS she is a member of the National Art Honor Society and is a member of the art club.

Mitchell learned about the Pre-Engineering program while in 8th grade and knew it was the class she wanted. Although she had a general knowledge about what she would learn in the class, she said she was surprised by how much the creative aspects of engineering impact everyday life. She has been in the program 9th through 12th grade.

“My instructors encourage me to apply various elements of my desired field into everyday assignments. I have researched clean-water sources and water purification to better understand how they work, as well as ways to make them safer and more efficient,” said Mitchell.

After high school and MNTC graduation in May, Mitchell plans to attend the University of Oklahoma and major in environmental engineering and said she would like to volunteer with Engineers Without Borders.

Diagnostic Medical Sonography student Alyssa Cornelison is the Moore Rotary Student of the Month. She is a member of the Health Occupations Students of America student organization and will graduate from the 15-month MNTC program in May. She decided on the DMS program and the medical industry as a career choice after becoming interested in ultrasound after the birth of her son in 2016. 

“I am so happy about my decision to attend Moore Norman. The staff has been a pleasure to work with. My instructors, Shawna Herell and Sarah Gladhill, were better than I could have ever hoped for,” said Cornelison.

She takes the abdomen ultrasound registry in May and will then be certified through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Alyssa has accepted a position at Integris Canadian Valley Hospital.

“Two weeks away from graduation and I can confidently say I have fully transformed into a sonographer. I’m so happy about my decision to attend Moore Norman. I would tell anyone considering attending that it will be the best decision for your future and your career,” said Cornelison.
