Warren Tech Students Selected for Project Search Initiative
Meeting

Nine students from Warren Technical School were selected to participate in the pilot program for Project Search beginning this summer. Project Search is a national organization with many locations throughout the United States and abroad that partners with local entities to provide job training and internship opportunities for individuals with special needs.

Dekalb County Schools, Dekalb Community Service Board, and Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation have joined forces with Woodbridge Corporation to launch the initiative for this new site. Work Based Learning coordinators, Dr. L Wright and Ms. K. Harris along with Lead Teacher of Special Education, Dr. B. Rice joined the planning team in December, 2018 in a meeting with representatives of Project Search to launch the project at Woodbridge Corporation in Lithonia.

Recommended students were selected based on interest and skill levels and invited to Woodbridge in March for a skills assessment. The assessment was conducted by the Human Resource Manager and other personnel from Woodbridge along with members of the planning team to determine if they were good candidates for the program. Nine of the ten students selected for the program were from Warren Tech! The objective is for students to work as interns for a year with the company and then hopefully join as permanent employees.

Warren Tech Chapter of SkillsUSA Wins Gold Chapter of Distinction
2019 Spring Business Advisory Luncheon
Collins

Business partners and local community leaders gathered at Warren Technical School on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 for an appreciation luncheon for their support of students and staff. Hosted by the Work Based Learning coordinators, the culinary team, the hospitality team, and other school personnel, our guests enjoyed a delicious lunch while continuing to exchange ideas with pathway teachers and with each other.

Principal Neal opened the event by extending a heartfelt welcome to guests, shared the school vision, and some of the accomplishments of our students. Assisted by the hospitality team, our award winning culinary team served a delicious meal of a mixed green salad followed by pimento cheese stuffed chicken with green beans and creamy duchess potatoes. They finished off the meal with a choice of chocolate ganache cake and vanilla cake filled with lemon curd. Members of Young Men of Distinction and Confident Ladies Acquiring Social Success directed parking and served as hosts and hostesses to greet guests as they arrived for this wonderful occasion.

The guest speaker for the occasion was Mrs. Linnet Miller who is founder and director of Ego-Ideal, Inc. Mrs. Miller delivered a very heartfelt message that appealed to employers and business leaders to look at the “abilities” and not the “disabilities” of special needs students. Her vision driven from that thought led her to begin Ego-Ideal, Inc. Her emotional story of how she approached her own son’s disability (abilities) helped him to overcome those perceived obstacles and today hold a job really inspired those who sat and attentively listened.

Dr. David Collins, the district’s Teacher of the Year, and Michelle Christian, Director of Programs for Tommy Nobis Center were recognized for their contributions to the students.   

Programs set up displays in the cafeteria where guests mixed and mingled as students showed off their projects and explained aspects of their individual pathways. This gave visitors an opportunity to explore and examine some of the students’ work while learning more about the skills they learned and practiced every day.

Guests then dispersed into classrooms of each of the various pathways to consult with teachers and provide input on industry trends and workforce needs for teachers to incorporate into their lesson plans so that they ensure students are prepared to enter into the workforce.

We would like to thank the staff of Warren Technical School for another successful Autism Walk this year. The overwhelming love and support for Jalen is amazing. Your donations will help Autism Speaks continue their advocacy and support of persons living with autism. Your monetary and in-kind donations of food, drinks, and paper goods items allowed for all that attended to eat and receive a Team Jammin Jalen T-shirt.

The Collier family appreciates you all and can’t wait until next year to do it again and tell you about the progress Jalen will make over the next year because of your support.

Agriculture Visits Alegre Farms

The students from the Agriculture Program expanded their knowledge of livestock through an educational experience at Alegre Farms in Duluth, GA.  While at the farm they expanded their knowledge in several areas.  They learned how to identify the different species of animals and their required habitats for maximum development.  

The students participated in feeding the livestock and in doing so learned some of the techniques used to keep the animals under control while feeding.

The owner/trainer on site demonstrated how to harvest eggs followed by a demonstration on how to milk goats.

The students got an opportunity to observe the owner feed sugar water to the bees and how to smoke bees to keep them calm while watching a demonstration on how to scrape the beehives.  One student actually participated in the demonstration.

The students then moved on to the worm hatchery to see how it is maintained. Overall, the students really enjoyed the visit to Alegre Farms and learned so much that the program is planning to take several more trips back before the end of the year.
