There was a special award given to one morning and one afternoon student. This award was a special attendance award. Mr. and Mrs. Bruce and Phyllis (Elaine McNeal) Marks donated a vehicle for NTCC to give away to a student. The NTCC students have redone the vehicle in several shops. Autobody and Auto Mechanics detailed and went over the vehicle to make sure this vehicle was ready to go and is something for the recipient to get started in. NTCC chose from 36 students in the afternoon who were on the exemplary attendance list. These students had a 97% or better attendance rate. Mr. Gary Martell, NTCC director commented, “Attendance is important because it is an employable skill. We teach this and expect our students to be at school. We are training for industry and kids can’t learn if they aren’t in school because our students learn by doing.” The award of a car went to an Auto Body Co-Op student who made a special effort in his senior year to his commitment to attendance – Cory Kunzman.
