Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple Computer, once said, "Teachers started recognizing me and praising me for being smart in science and that made me want to be even smarter in science!" At eCampus, we also want to recognize our student's accomplishments to inspire them to become lifelong learners and perhaps, become innovators and visionaries in the fields they are passionate about. We hope you enjoy viewing and experiencing our student's success. Please visit us often as we update this site with plenty of student success stories.
Student Showcase #1
Name: Connor McMenemy
Nominating Teacher: Mrs. Susan Leon
Course: CTE Internship-Fire Science
Description: In the CTE Internship Course, students are not only required to do regular assignments in the Moodle class, but also complete a 100 hour internship in their chosen career field.
Quote from teacher: "While most students are talking or thinking about becoming a fire fighter, Connor is actually doing it. He has taken the extra step to be enrolled in the Internship class so he can get more experience at a fire station, on top of taking the fire science program at Sunrise Mountain. He is excited and vibrant when talking about what he gets to accomplish with his mentors. He is getting hands on experience in ride alongs, and even got to sit in on interviews! Getting to see him succeed and set himself up for success in the future is truly one of the reasons I teach. Connor, you're awesome!
I included a picture from when the Sunrise Mtn. Fire Science program came and presented to the Centennial COOP."
Student Showcase #2
Name: Kaitlyn Zurcher
Nominating Teacher: Mrs. Cara Miller
Course: English II
Description: Students were required to conduct research on a social crisis of their choice. They had to locate sources, assess their credibility, gather relevant evidence on various aspects of the crisis, and use that research to create two products (an informative brochure and an audio recording presentation). Kaitlyn chose to focus on school shootings, specifically the Columbine Shooting, and created a fantastic brochure and verbal explanation.
Quote from teacher: "Kaitlyn has been a fantastic student throughout this course and consistently turns in quality work. The research process can be difficult, but Kaitlyn tackled it head on and excelled on all steps on this project. Her brochure was thorough and helps readers develop a deep understanding of her topic, while her audio presentation was clear and easy to follow. I appreciate the work she put into this project! Her finished products are something the be proud of!
