Congratulations to Parker Thornton, TCI’s Vocational Student of the Month.
Parker is 18 years old and is a senior at Piedmont High School. He excels in his academic activities and has been involved in playing football and the agricultural program.
In his spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, welding, and working on trucks and tractors.
His future plans include attending Gadsden State Community College and receive a degree in Welding. Parker’s career goals include owning his own welding shop one day.
We honor Parker for outstanding achievement and look forward to seeing him pursue his goals.
TCI desires to support and encourage high school seniors who plan to pursue an associate degree or a certification in a trade/vocational field. With this in mind, we will be offering two scholarships to be awarded in May of each school year. In honor of TCI's Founder, the Kenneth Bice Vocational Scholarship will be awarded to well deserving students.
Each month a senior student enrolled in their local high school vocational/trade program will be selected to be recognized as the TCI Student of the Month. At the end of the school year, two students will be selected to receive a scholarship to apply to their educational cost as they further their education in their chosen field.
