CHS student earns Breaking Traditions Award
Cassville High School student Josie Hilburn, who attends the automotive collision repair program at the Scott Regional Technology Center in Monett, received an honorable mention Regional Breaking Traditions Award through the Missouri Breaking Traditions contest this year. Hilburn was nominated by her instructor, Jansen Fisher. Nontraditional means occupations or fields of work in which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in that occupation or field. Career centers, public two year colleges and comprehensive high schools are invited to nominate a single student from each nontraditional program. Winners are chosen by a panel of judges and have the opportunity to compete for state awards. The Breaking Traditions awards are sponsored by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and Career Education Coordinators.
