PCHS honors outstanding students

Pulaski County High School’s vocational department recognized two students as being outstanding during a faculty meeting earlier this week.
Vocational teacher Tim Dalrymple, along with David Creed, branch manager of State Electric Supply Co. in Christiansburg, surprised Guy Stike, a student in Dalrymple’s electricity III course, with a "Top Apprentice Award" during the meeting.
The award included a tool set from Klein Tools, valued at approximately $150. Klein Tools is the leading brand for hand tools in the electrical industry, Creed said.
Stike is a senior at PCHS. This year, he will compete at the state SkillsUSA competition in the industrial motor control category. In addition, he is in the running for a national officer position with SkillsUSA.
The Top Apprentice Award is given to an outstanding student who has displayed excellent skills and leadership within the vocational field, Creed said.
"We take any opportunity to recognize young people who excel, especially in the vocational field," Creed said, adding that they like to be able to show their appreciation for a job well done for a student who is talented at working with their hands.
Along with Stike, another senior, Felicia Fisher, was recognized for her skills as a vocational student.
CAD teacher Lee Newby presented Fisher with a certificate for earning first place at the regional SkillsUSA competition in the architectural drafting category.
Newby said that the competition for the architectural drafting category consisted of drawing plans for both floors of a two-story house, along with two exterior views, within a period of four hours, using a professional architectural drafting program.
Newby, who is in his fifth year teaching at PCHS and has 18 years of experience working in the field of architectural drafting, said that he likes to be able to give his top-level students some real world experience by giving them actual projects to work on and creating an office-type atmosphere with the same expectations he would have for his employees.
Fisher is one of his students who has had the opportunity to work on some of those projects, so she said that experience definitely helped her prepare for the SkillsUSA competition.
She added that she plans to go into the architectural drafting field and will attend New River Community College next year.
