Ionia County Career Center - Awards Ceremony
Ionia County Career Center held their annual award ceremonies on Tuesday, May 10th 2022, honoring their countywide students at the career center. We greatly appreciate everyone who was able to take time out of their busy schedule to attend and support the students!
The top three awards given are the Program Award, Distinguished Student Award & Scholarships.
A student is nominated by their instructor as the individual who represents the highest accomplishments. This award goes to the student “Most Likely to Succeed”.
DISTINGUISHED STUDENT AWARD
Senior students are nominated by their instructors. One student per district is selected by the staff as the best overall Ionia County Career Center representative including attendance, technical and related academic skills, extra-curricular involvement, attitude, and leadership ability.
We were honored to give out over $9000 in scholarships to students this year!
Student Advisory Scholarships
Student Advisory Scholarships are awarded from funds raised by Ionia County Career Center Student Advisory throughout the 2021-2022 school year. This year some of the notable fundraisers were the shirt orders, change wars, MOO-Ville, Wagon Wheel, and pickle & popcorn sales.
This year our Culinary Arts & Machine Tool gave out specific program scholarships to selected students.
