Region 9 is proud to present Jasmine Dixon as our 2020-2021 Student of the Year. Jasmine is a second year Building Construction student. Her instructor, Jeff Rainey, shared:
“Sometimes you find your calling, and Jasmine has found hers. Her natural skills and abilities, along with her ability to follow instructions have launched her to the top of the class. In all my years of Building, I’ve never seen anyone come so far so quickly.”
Outside of school, Jasmine enjoys painting, wood burning and embroidering. She also likes riding snowmobiles and four-wheelers and going on motorcycle rides.
After graduating high school, Jasmine will be attending Eastern Maine Community College and participating in their Fine Woodworking and Cabinet Making Program.
Jasmine is passionate about supporting women in non-traditional careers. Her goal is to open a fine woodworking shop, and offer a place where women can demonstrate their skills and passion for the field.
Congratulations, Jasmine, from the staff, students, Board members, and the Director of Region 9 for being selected as our CTE Student of The Year!
