Four SEITec students’ names were drawn to win a free SEITec shirt. They were (left to right): Carter Jeppsen, Mikki Clark, Shannen Hudnell, and Tayvin Scott.
On May 18, the Malad students enrolled in SEITec held a graduation celebration luncheon. SEITec is a joint charter school of Malad, West Side, and Preston. The students celebrated the 27 diploma recipients from SEITec, and the two lucky scholarship winners. Those chosen at random to receive a $500 scholarship were Riley Dorius and Peyton Sweat. The celebration luncheon also included four tee shirt winners. They were Carter Jeppsen, Mikki Clark, Tayven Scott, and Shannen Hudnell.
To earn a diploma from SEITec, the students need to finish a pathway of study which results in a certification or marketable skill. The students are able to start on this pathway as early as the eighth grade. These pathways include health occupations, education, technology, agriculture, or auto mechanics. Students then go through two different job interviews and produce a high quality resume. They also participate in a work-place experience to help them gain skills and perspectives that will jump start them into a career.
Rachel Madsen, SEITec administrator, said, “Students who chose to earn the SEITec diploma are ‘climbing higher’, and we wish them the best as they pursue more education and careers!”
When the diploma recipients graduate from Malad High School, they will wear a special green tassel indicating that they are also graduating from SEITec.
Those students who will be graduating with a degree from SEITec are: Kimberlee Bodily, Hannah Brown, Xander Chelette, Mikki Clark, Kasey Davis, Riley Dorius, Jared Girard, Brooklynn Gross, Nickalaus Hardy, Kodie Heyder, Kendall Hill, Shannen Hudnell, Emma Jacobsen, Rylee Jacobsen, Carter Jeppson, Shaelie Ketchell, Travis Martin, Chloe Mills, Johnathan Nieffenegger, Tanner Olsen, McKinna Owens, Kodi Phillips, Chase Richardson, Hayden Schwartz, Tayvin Scott, Peyton Sweat, and Ben Wray.
