Congratulations to the October Student of the Month!

Joseph Taylor served in the United States Army as a military police officer from 1997 to 2003. He used that experience at USEC as a federal police officer until he was laid off in February 2014. Preparing for the future, Joseph enrolled at WKCTC as the first step to a new career - a step that led him to being selected as WKCTCs October Student of the Month.

I am honored to be selected, but I cant take all the credit. I had help from Trio (Student Support Services), the Adult Learning Center, VA benefits and the colleges mentoring program. Lots of hard work and studying, and that help, has made me worthy of this award."

While employed at the plant, Joseph completed two semesters at WKCTC in 2010-11. Now back at WKCTC, he is majoring in business administration with a focus in accounting. He will graduate in December 2014, and plans to transfer to MSU to earn a bachelors degree in business administration.

Joesph is an active member of the colleges student veterans organization and has been a student worker in the colleges Adult Learning Center. Currently, he works in the Office of Veteran Services assisting college veterans as they begin the educational process.

Those who nominated Joseph said his level of professionalism in the workplace is second-to-none, and he is truly an outstanding student and a fantastic example of what we want to see in our student body.

Congratulations Joseph!!
