WKCTC Welding Technology Program Student Selected as February Student of the Month

student1PADUCAH, Ky. (3/21/13) - Tony Seaton entered the Welding Technology program at West Kentucky Community and Technical College just over a year ago and has now earned the distinction of the college's Student of the Month for February.

Seaton, 33, of Fulton County, worked with heavy equipment most of his life, but "there's a high demand and more money in welding, so I came back for my degree," said Seaton. "Now I've been chosen as Student of the Month by people who have mentored me; I'm truly honored for it."

Seaton said WKCTC's welding program is top of the line and he feels his instructors are the best on campus. "They strive make us the best we can be and make sure we go and succeed in the real world as a welder."

Seaton's instructors praise his enthusiasm, ability to work well with others, willingness to help fellow students, and dedication and determination to succeed. He recently accepted the position of the welding program advisory student.

"Tony contributes to the committee by helping the program stay on the path of the KCTCS goals and assessments," said WKCTC Welding Program Coordinator Paul Housholder. "I've seen a lot of students come and go in 25 years, and this one has future leader labeled on him."

The Student of the Month program is designed to recognize the accomplishments of students on campus. Individuals selected must be currently enrolled at WKCTC and have maintained a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher and are nominated on the basis of exceptional performance, personal attributes, academic excellence and active participation in various student organizational activities. Student of the Month winners receive $100, a certificate of excellence, recognition in the college's newsletter, Facebook page, campus announcements and Web site.
