Students Place At ANC Competition
Posted on 01/01/2018
Blytheville and Burdette - NEACTC students brought back the bacon recently while competing at Arkansas Northeastern College.  Actually, students brought back a first place trophy, a first place gold medal, five silver medals, and a bronze medal.

It was the first time that NEACTC students had participated in the competition known as the TOPS Challenge.  Students from northern Arkansas and southern Missouri made the trip to take part in the competition.

NEACTC Director Eddie Crain stated that he appreciated the opportunity to work with ANC.  "As I stated to Gene Bennett of ANC during the awards presentation ceremony at Burdette, 
we can accomplish much more when we work together."  Crain said that he also appreciated Sherri Bennett (ANC Director) and Michelle Bennett (ANC Assistant Director) for allowing NEACTC students the opportunity to compete.

quizAt the Blytheville campus, the team of Sydney Wood, Karen Lopez, McKenzie Wilson and Anthony Canizales (JHS) captured silver in the Medical Professions Quiz Bowl.  Team sponsors are RN's Lynn Wolfe and Gina Cornish.
At Burdette meanwhile, 
NEACTC student Esperenza Ruiz (Riverside) captured gold and a first place trophy in Early Childhood Hands-on.  She is enrolled in Ricky Barker's Advanced Manufacturing class.

Industrial Technology students Chandler Tate (Riverside) anCollin Ryan (JHS) placed in mechatronics.  Chandler won silver while Collin picked up the bronze medal.

The Industrial Technology program of study is in its inaugural year at NEACTC.  The program is taught by Johnny Tierce and was created after nearly 18 months of collaboration with business and industry partners, the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce, and both NEACTC and JPS administrators.  A partnership team was thus created, which visited several sites around the state as the program was under development.

Congratulations to NEACTC students and instructors for a job well done!
