Posted by Kathy Rosenwinkel on 4/25/2017

Each year, DuPage County school principals are eligible to recognize one or two students from the top grade in their school for academic performance, exemplary citizenship, overall improvement or other criteria the principal wishes to apply. Those students are recognized at the association’s annual spring breakfast.

Three high school students enrolled in elective programs at Technology Center of DuPage in Addison were honored for excellence at the Illinois Principals Association (IPA-DuPage Region) breakfast, Monday, April 24 at the Abbington Distinctive Banquets in Glen Ellyn.

TCD principal Steve Carr honored senior Jehu Gomez of Glenbard East in TCD’s Construction Trades program and Athina Darrus, a senior from Downers Grove South in the Cosmetology program.

Jehu and Athina were selected for their outstanding performance in their programs and for their exceptional efforts as community ambassadors and TCD partner school liaisons.

Lake Park principal John Gouriotis honored senior Michala Belter for her academic excellence. Michala also happens to be enrolled in a TCD program (Early Childhood Education & Care) as an elective part of Lake Park’s curriculum.

Athina, Michala, and Jehu plan to continue in the career path they explored through Technology Center of DuPage. Their confidence in their career choices and future academic pursuits are strong indications of the benefits of the TCD/DuPage County High School partnership.
