April 20, 2017 – Pre-Nursing Instructor Jennifer Clements has been named the South Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce Technology Schools Teacher of the Year from Moore Norman Technology Center. Additionally, MNTC Graphic Design student Evangeline Noah was selected as the MNTC Technology Student of the Year.
Clements and many others who work in public and technical education took honors in multiple categories and received their awards during the SOKC Chamber’s annual Excellence in Education award banquet held Monday at MNTC’s South Penn Campus.
Clements has taught the full-time Pre-Nursing class at MNTC for four years. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She has worked at the Bone and Joint Hospital and with the Surgery Center of Oklahoma. She also taught at Moore High School for four years. She said she always wanted to teach and loves her work as the Pre-Nursing instructor, as it allows her to share her knowledge of nursing, and also to set a positive example. She trains Pre-Nursing high school seniors and adult students to become certified as Advanced Unlicensed Assistants (AUA).
Noah’s recognition earned her a scholarship that is good toward a tuition waiver for continued education. She was selected as the Norman Kiwanis Club Student of the Month in February and will graduate in December. She is an active member of the SkillsUSA student organization and serves as her class secretary and the MNTC chapter reporter. She plans to continue her education at Oklahoma City Community College in a diversified studies pathway.
