Good morning! I would like to take another moment to congratulate our seniors for ALL their many accomplishments this school year. You all looked great Saturday and despite the uniqueness of the commencement ceremony it was great being able to celebrate all Warren County seniors. I would also like to thank everyone who worked tireless behind the scenes to make Saturday a huge success! Mr. Andre Steward, Mrs. Donna Martin, and Mrs. Clair Vandiford I know put in countless hours prepping before hand and working so hard Saturday morning and I just want to say "Thank you" for all your hard work!

Today is bittersweet; today we will recognize our last senior and how fitting it is to recognize this senior on graduation day! Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Tyrell Wilson as our senior for the day. Tyrell is the type of student who leaves a lasting impression on everyone he meets and the type of student, teachers and staff will never forget. Since the beginning of his senior year, Tyrell has been on top of every requirement because he did not want to wait until the last minute and he had this attitude with everything he did including his arrival time to school. Tyrell typically arrived to school each morning by 7:00am beating every student to school and most staff members. Tyrell has been a perfectionist and completes his tasks long before they are due. I have gotten to know Tyrell personally this year with our one-on-one talks and I must say his maturity level and the amount of respect he has for his grandparents is unprecedented for a young man of his age. He contributes the man he has grown into solely to his grandparents and his appreciation and love he has for them deeply humbles me. Tyrell will be heading to East Carolina University in the fall where he will be majoring in Computer Science. From the very first interaction that I had with Tyrell, I knew that he was special. In addition to his incredible work ethic that made him a wonderful student to teach, he was always helpful and patient with his peers, and was the most attentive listener. I was thrilled when I had drawn Tyrell’s name to be a part of my “Family”. I am forever thankful for the opportunities to celebrate all of Tyrell’s accomplishments with him this school year. I will always remember our sparkling cider toast that our family held for Tyrell when he was accepted to and committed to his top choice school, East Carolina University! I am so proud of how hard Tyrell has worked to achieve his goals and I know that he is prepared and ready to take on the world. Now, he is a proud Pirate, but I will always be proud that he is my “son”. - Tanner Tyrell has always gone above and beyond in my classroom. He questions everything and thinks objectively. He grasps knowledge and takes it in while also considering all other factors. He is a complex thinker. I know he will do great things - Wisler Congratulations Tyrell! We will certainly miss you at Warren New Tech but know you have great things in store for you. We wish you much success! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Guess what day it is?!? It’s graduation day!!! Seniors we will see you at the Middle School in bus parking lot at 9:15 and graduation will promptly begin at 10:00. Congratulations Seniors on this milestone and we can’t wait to see you and celebrate you!!!!
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Daniel White as our senior of the day. Daniel's presence does not go unnoticed down the hall of New Tech. Daniel towers over the majority of his classmates but despite his stature, Daniel is a very quiet, mannerable young man who tries not to stand out but he does stand out in all the right ways. Daniel is a very hard worker and is self-motivated especially when it comes to his online college courses as well as his projects in his regular high school courses. Daniel has a drive about him that will allow him to be successful with whatever he does in life. Daniel plans on attending East Carolina University in the fall where he will major in Business. Daniel has a very modest personality. He is a focused and goal-driven student and his approach towards teamwork and projects is commendable. I will most certainly miss his unassuming nature and his great sense of humor. - Waugh-Lewis Daniel is a quiet student and is friendly to all of his peers. As a student in a project-based learning environment, he has acquired the skills to work with peers of different strengths, personalities and work ethics. He considers himself to be an individual who “gets along with everyone”. After speaking with teachers and school staff, they shared that he is cooperative and hard working. He is a great problem solver and demonstrates a positive growth mindset when he approaches setbacks. - Tanner Congratulations Daniel! We wish you success and a bright future ahead of you. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Kellen Tucker as our senior for the day. Kellen is the student who always says "Yes ma`am" not matter what, whether he is in the right or not. Kellen wore his baseball shirt to school one day and I was fussing telling him he could not wear the shirt and all Kellen said was, "Yes ma`am" and went and put his school polo shirt on. He never said, "It's game day" instead he simply complied with my request. Later when I realized he was in the right and I was in the wrong, he without hesitation accepted my apology and put his baseball shirt back on and never mentioned it again. That is the type of student he is, very mannerable and nonconfrontational and always willing to go above and beyond in everything he does. Kellen has been a student athlete his entire high school career playing soccer and baseball, but baseball has always been his passion. Kellen plans on attending East Carolina University in the fall where he will be majoring in accounting. I am so happy to call Kellen "my son". During family meetings I can depend on him to offer beneficial 'big brother' advice whether it is academic or social. He leads by example participating in Family Projects and others activities as well as staying focused academically as well as keeping his promises. He has a very kind heart and I admire that as well as many of his other attributes. Kellen, I wish you success in your endeavors. Go and Grow! - Waugh-Lewis I have been very impressed with Kellen’s ability to manage multiple activities while also taking a rigorous course load. He has demonstrated the responsibility and accountability necessary to meet the expectations that his teachers, coaches, parents and supervisors have of him. Kellen is a student athlete, maintains a part-time job, volunteers at the local fire department and is enrolled two college courses at the local community college. His experiences and service have shaped him into a well-rounded, humble young man. - Tanner Congratulations Kellen! The sky is the the limit. Go forward and make your mark on this world. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Good morning families! Please do not forget about the Zoom meeting this evening at 5:30. The code for the meeting has been emailed to all students so please ask your child to open his/her email and share with you the link. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance. "See" you all at 5:30.
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Selena Thompson as our senior of the day. Selena is the type of student you will never forget; she has a beautiful smile and disposition. She speaks up when she does not understand something or when she simply disagrees. She has been on the softball team every year expect her senior year of high school because her schedule was too overwhelming. She is a hard worker both in school and out of school. Selena is an all around great student with a heart of gold. Selena plans on attending Wake Technical Community College in the fall where she will study nursing. Selena is a very clever and smart young lady. She is a hard worker both in school and out. She is a very, very capable young lady that will be successful at anything she puts her mind to. The Future is YOURS! Ms. Grantham Selena is a fun-loving student. I have enjoyed my rapport with her even when she would say "I don't got time for this" then go right ahead and complete her tasks. She has a warm and caring personality hidden behind her "don't care" attitude. Selena, congratulations, be brave and challenge yourself to continue succeeding. - Waugh-Lewis Congratulation Selena! You will definitely be missed at New Tech but we wish you all the luck in your future. Future patients will be in good hands with you being their nurse. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Jackson Ross as our senior of the day. Jackson is a very laid back student that has the ability to make anyone laugh. He is always willing to offer a helping hand to anyone in need no matter how big or small the job. He is very dependable and when he gives you his word he does not disappoint you. Most students cannot wait for the school day to end but Jackson willingly extended his learning four days a week to take evening welding classes at Vance Granville and excelled. Jackson plans to pursue his welding certification at Vance Granville Community College in the fall. Jackson was that one son a mother could not do without. He had a hint of mischief in his eyes each time he tackled a project and you knew it was going to be super. Jackson was a "Jack of all trades and a master of all." His passion for practical tasks is unequivocal. The world is waiting on you to build a powerful stage for your success young man! May the son continue to shine on you my SON! Congratulations Jackson! We know with your determination and drive you will accomplish any and everything you set out to accomplish. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020

Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Joshua Robinson as our senior of the day. Despite all obstacles, Joshua has pushed through and persevered this school year. He is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure he has completed all requirements and expectations. He has been an athlete throughout his high school years and continued to support his basketball team even when he was recovering this fall. Joshua has been an upstanding student his entire time at New Tech and has always had a great disposition, positive attitude and very mannerable, these are the soft skills that can not be taught. Joshua has always been a mild mannered. Joshua was always calm and respectful even when he complained about me assigning too much work. Joshua is smart, hardworking and determined. I'm sure that he will use those same attributes in his future endeavors. Remember to always put your best foot forward and never give up on your dreams. Best wishes to you! ~ W. Turrentine Earlier this school year, Josh underwent surgery that required him to miss a significant amount of school. During his recovery, despite being out of school and away from instruction, Josh impressed me so much with his ability to maintain his school work and with his smooth transition back into the classroom. Despite the hardships that come with surgery and school absences, Josh has managed to have his best academic year since being a Warren New Tech High School student. - Tanner Congratulations Joshua! We wish you all the best in your future. Dream big and reach for the stars! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Jose R. Labra as our senior of the day. Jose is one of the quietest student I have ever met and he has been since his elementary days at South Warren Elementary. Jose has the sweetest, most sincere smiles you will ever see. He is a very mannerable student who is extremely diligent and such a hard worker. Jose` plans to study Criminal Justice at Vance Granville Community College in the fall. Jose is extremely smart and works hard in the classroom. What sticks out to me the most about Jose is his positive attitude. He is always so mannerable and respectful. Best wishes in his future endeavors. ~ W. Turrentine Jose is so much smarter than what may be seen to the naked eye. He has always been one of the quieter students (just like I was) but does not hold back when it comes to showing his intelligence. Jose is brilliant and can pay attention when the entire room is distracted. He could remember a small thought said as students are leaving the classroom. His mind is capable of much more than he has been held accountable for. He can do great things that even he isn't aware of - Wisler Congratulations, Jose! We wish you the best in your future and know you will do well. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Alaina Pulley as our senior of the day. Alaina is a student who is wise way beyond her years. She is the mother hen of her senior group taking care of everyone and cheering her friends on when they want to give up. Alaina has been a senior ambassador since her freshman year and is the most reliable teenager I have ever had the privilege to work with. Alaina was triple enrolled in WNTHS, NCSSM, and VGCC. She will be graduating high school with 25 college credits. Alaina will be heading to NC State in the fall where she will be studying criminology. Congratulations Alaina! I remember Alaina first coming into my room before officially being my student as I was decorating my room for the first day of school. She offered to help decorate, and I took up her offer. I was planning on working on a mural made out of paper for my wall, and so I told her she could cut out about 10 free-hand, four-pointed stars for me to incorporate. Thinking this was an easy request, I walked away and continued to ready my classroom. After a few minutes, I went back and saw her using a ruler to make measurements, worrying about each cut before making the cut, and being a bit more detail-oriented than I expected. It was my first clue as to how thorough she was and how much she would keep me on my toes when I finally had her as my student. And keep me on my toes she did. She always rose to any occassion I set up and defied my expectations. Now graduating and going to North Carolina State University, I think it's suitable that my first memory of her is of cutting out a star, because that's what she truly is, and I'm sure she'll continue to shine. - Farrell Alaina's attention to detail and obsession with perfection are qualities I hold eternal. As a student her classwork was just as artisically choregraphed as her performance as a dancer. I would welcome her help to change my bulletin board each year but quickly regretted accepting her help when I had to re-do a half inch border that was "crooked" She was meticulous and seamlessly managed her co-curricular tasks, college courses and regular classes. I remember when she walked into my room last year and declared that I could not have her sister in my family unless I adopted her as well. Who would have thought that she knew " Three little birds" I'm still awed that she sang Bob Marley's melody effortlessly. In the meantime I hum the song she taught me "No shirt, no shoes, no problem... The world awaits all the dynamic moves you have left Princess. -Lee Alaina is currently taking one of the most rigorous course loads amongst her peers, with two courses through the North Carolina School of Science and Math online program and with a face-to-face course at our local Community College. Alaina has also become a leader at the dance studio where she participates in competition dance by volunteering as a teacher’s assistant and by teaching classes to preschool dancers. - Tanner Congratulations Alaina! The world is at your fingertips so go out and make your mark on it. We will miss your ambition and drive but know we will be reading about you and your successes in the near future. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Elijah Perry. Elijah is the type of student who can make anyone laugh. He has the ability to put a smile on one's face when they are having a bad day or lighten the mood when there is too much tension in the air. Elijah has so much potential and has the ability to do anything he sets his mind to. He is very honest so if you do not want to know the answer to a question you better not ask Elijah. During the summer of 2018 I remember working at my summer job and seeing a person's name tag said Perry. I worked with this person and found out after a couple weeks it was Elijah's father. He said some great things about his son. One thing that stuck out to me was the maturity of Elijah to talk to his dad honestly and openly about the things a man encounters in his life. I believe this will take him a long way. ~Evans Elijah is a smart and talented young man. He is always willing to offer assistance to a fellow classmate, oftentimes speaking up on their behalf. This is a good leadership quality that, once nurtured, will help him to be an effective voice for the voiceless. I believe Elijah will become a positive, influential and successful leader. - Waugh-Lewis Congratulations Elijah! We will miss your smile and humorous personality. We wish you all the luck in your future and whatever this world has in store for you. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Calling all seniors... Seniors, please come back by the school tomorrow even if you came today because you have 2 more surprises waiting for you that were just delivered...
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Kassidie Newell as our senior of the day. Kassidie is an all around great student with a heart of gold. She has the tendency to keep to herself unless she is interacting with adults or close friends. When Kassidie sees someone in need, classmate, teacher or even administration she always offers her help and is even willing to stay after school to get a job done. Beginning second semester Kassidie was living off of coffee and very little sleep in order to stay on top of her college classes and all that determination paid off. Kassidie plans on attending nursing school at Vance Granville Community College. Much to the dismay of the other “parents”, I had the fortune of drawing Kassidie’s name for Families this year. I was so proud of her competitive nature and creativity when it came to decorating our door for the Christmas Door Decorating contest. Kassidie’s enthusiasm and commitment to going above and beyond (literally), was so impressive! Not only was our door decorated, but we had an entire Gingerbread House to display! Thanks to Kassidie’s innovation and leadership, Tanner’s Thunder Trolls took victory in the 2019 Christmas Door Decorating Contest! - Tanner I have had the pleasure of watching Kassidie grow since she was a freshman at New Tech, and I cannot think of someone who has changed so much since they first walked through those doors. She is an extremely reliable friend and has shown her heart of gold over the years with helping teachers and her peers whenever she can. I will miss having her in my room for lunch everyday, having great conversations with her about her future and her life, and continuing to watch her grow. The people she'll care for in the future are in great hands, and I'm sure they'll feel her impact long after. - Farrell Congratulations, Kassidie! We will miss your helping hands at New Tech but know the people you will be taking care of in the future could not ask for a better, more reliable person. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020

Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Roshene Mills as our senior of the day. Rocky is a student you can not help but notice when he walks down the hall yet he is modest and will simply smile when you offer him a compliment . He is an all around great kid who truly cares about his fellow classmates and teammates. Rocky has grown into a responsible young man who has the ability and determination to do anything he puts his mind to. I had the pleasure of being one of Rocky's Senior advisors this year. Rocky was always willing to do what I asked him to do in order to be in compliance although at times he would get frustrated he would pull through. He has such a loving personality which I always admire. He always seemed to be so calm and pleasant. I will miss seeing him in school and the hugs he would have to offer! Keep going Rocky. - A. Pommells Though I have only known Rocky for one year, I have a lot of admiration for the guy. He's very respectful and nice to everyone. I've never heard him say anything negative, rude or judgemental. He's very open minded and gets along with everyone. He has an admirable personality. I just know he's going to have a great life of building strong bonds and relationships with other people. -Wisler Roshene has demonstrated admirable growth and maturity. He has progressed from the shy unassuming 2016 freshman into a senior with drive and determination. He is well mannered, dependable and respectful. He has an unwavering commitment to sports that he finds difficult to resist even when injured. His charming smile illuminated my days! "Go rock the world Rocky!!"- Lee Rocky, is a generous, creative young man with a big heart. During the time that I have been at New Tech he has demonstrated the he is a "man of his word" . Be Proud of that... A man's word is his bond." Ms. Grantham Congratulations Rocky! Your smile and kind heart will be missed but we wish you all the luck in the world. We know with your determination you will do great things! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Victor Mata Jr. as our senior for the day. Victor is a quiet, gentle giant and has been since his elementary days at South Warren Elementary School. Victor has a sweet spirit but always has a serious look on his face. Victor has always applied himself in his academic studies and his determination and work ethic is what led to his acceptance to Barton College. Victor has been a joy to have as a student. He is hardworking, dedicated, and always goes above and beyond in the classroom. He's self motivated and shows team effort in being willing to help his peers. I'm excited to see the great things Victor will accomplish in the future. ~W. Turrentine I am amazed at how much growth I have observed in this young man in three years. Victor is extremely creative, artistic and devoted. He has a strong sense of self and is a fierce advocate for his peers. I will miss watching him make trees for Christmas doors or adding his competitive spirit to group tasks. -Lee In addition to his resilience and hard-working personality, Victor has many other character traits that make him special to our school community. Victor is always willing to lend a hand to help others and has a smile on his face when he performs various tasks. Taking dual-enrollment courses gives students more freedom with their school schedules and in the rare chance that Victor does have down-time, he can usually be found somewhere around the school making art for teachers doors and classrooms. Victor has even found a way to turn his passion for art into a way to give back to his school community. - Tanner Congratulations Victor! You made an impact on the students and staff during your time at Warren New Tech now it is time for you to make an impact on the world! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020

Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Lucas Lynch as our senior of the day. Lucas is one of the most mannerable young men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. At first, I thought Lucas was very shy until I got to know him and realized Lucas does not say much but when he does speak you better listen because he has something profound to say. Lucas is an outstanding student who applies himself daily in every class. Lucas has perhaps had the most compelling arc of any of the graduates at New Tech this year. He has grown into a very respectful young man who takes accountability of his actions, balances school and work, and uses his voice for his Native American community. I'm sure he will represent New Tech proudly as a Brave at UNCP. I am most proud of Lucas’ accomplishments representing the American Indian culture at his school, in his community and within the state of North Carolina. He is passionate about youth engagement in important decisions and encouraging youth to make a difference within their own communities. Lucas is currently serving as the Treasurer on the Red Earth Youth Council and is the Historian on the North Carolina Native American Youth Organization. His duties allow him the opportunity to meet with leadership and youth of tribes across North Carolina as often as every other weekend. For his Senior Project, Lucas hand-beaded a bandolier bag that he plans to give to his younger brother to wear with his regalia. - Tanner Congratulations Lucas! We wish you luck and know you will accomplish greatness with your determination and work ethic. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Jabrell Lee as our senior for the day. Jabrell is a mannerable young man who's smile will brighten anyone's day. He is a hard worker both with his school work as well as job outside of school. Jabrell is a natural leader and is willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Jabrell always steps up and willingly serves on any committee or leads any activities asked of him. Jabrell plans on attending NC A&T in the fall. Jabrell is funny and always has a positive attitude. He is hardworking and very smart. He always speaks his mind and expresses concerns in the most mannerable way. Best wishes in the future. ~ W. Turrentine Jabrell may be one of the lowkey funniest kids to grace the hall of New Tech. He is extremely playful and has a great attitude that can lighten any situation, but knows when to get serious. He has learned to embrace his natural intelligence and demonstrated ownership of his ability to be an effective leader, and I know he will be a role model (and provide some comedic relief) at NC A&T. - Farrell Congratulations Jabrell! We wish you all the best and know you will do great things in your future. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Clinton Harrison Jr. as our senior of the day. Every morning Clinton walks into school and says "Good morning" no matter what kind of day he is having. Clinton is a rule follower 100% of the time and will not deviate from what is right no matter what his peers may say. Clinton amazes me when he presents because of his attention to detail and his ability to thoroughly explain his topic. Clinton has no problem voicing his opinion but he also has the ability to back his opinions up with facts that lead him to his conclusion. Clinton is the perfect example of a New Tech Knight because he demonstrates trust, respect, and responsibility daily. I admire Clinton's determination and his enthusiasm for learning. He takes his coursework seriously, he works well with his teachers and he overcomes adversities. Even when Clinton is challenged or faced with obstacles, he perseveres and overcomes. Although Clinton is quiet, he is not to be underestimated. Clinton has already demonstrated that he has the abilities, determination and grit to do amazing things! - Tanner Clinton has always astounded me. He is one of the most honest individuals I've encountered, and his compliments have a profound, gratifying effect on an individual due to just how honest he is. Even though he is relatively quiet, he makes sure his voice is heard whenever he notices anything unfair or unjust. Not only that, but his level of intellect and ability to think abstractly often stuns his audience and leaves them in quiet awe. I know that everyone he works with in the future will also be in awe of his brilliance, and I hope he continues to share these gifts with the world. - Farrell Congratulations Clinton! We wish you the best and can not wait to see the mark you make on this world! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today for extended Teacher Appreciation Week, Warren New Tech would like to recognize our Social Workers, Mrs. Andrews and Mrs. Williams! Mrs. Andrews typically works with the high schools where Mrs. Williams normally works with the elementary schools but the two of them are such a wonderful team that they go wherever they are needed no matter where they are assigned. Neither are housed at Warren New Tech but they are only a phone call away if needed. Mrs. Andrews and Mrs. Williams conduct trainings for the staff across the district and are always coming up with ideas to help support teachers, students and parents. We are very fortunate to have such caring social workers who are active members of the community we serve. Thank you ladies for everything you do!
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Kayson Hargrove as our Senior of the day. Kayson is a meek, mannerable young man who has a heart of gold, especially when it comes to his friends. He is they type of student every teacher wants on their roster because he puts forth effort in all of his classes and is actively engaged. Kayson plans to attend Wake Tech Community College in the fall where I know he will flourish. When Kayson first came to Warren New Tech, he was demure in nature and was not looking to be the center of attention. However, when it came to projects in the classroom, he would always use his niche knowledge of pop culture to make them engaging, and that's when his voice started to become firm and passionate. He has truly grown into a confident, vocal leader as a student ambassador (with an unparalleled level of sass and ability to eye-roll that I will thoroughly miss), and I know he will leave an impression on all those he meets at Wake Tech in the fall. - Farrell Kayson has many friends that he cares deeply about. He actively participates in school events and works great in groups, a trait that is important in a project-based learning environment. In all of our interactions, he has been respectful and attentive. Kayson has demonstrated his maturity and responsibility by managing a full student course-load which includes a dual-enrollment college course while also managing to work part-time outside of school. - Tanner Congratulations Kayson! We wish you the best and know your future will be bright because you have the drive to make sure all of your dreams come true! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today for extended Teacher Appreciation week I would like to recognize Mr. and Mrs. Watson. Mr. and Mrs. Watson joined the New Tech family this past July and we are so very fortunate to have them. They jumped right in without hesitation, like they have been apart of the faculty forever. Mr. and Mrs. Watson are constantly busy, taking care of the entire building and going above and beyond their job description daily. They have built relationships with the students and have gotten to know the students and deeply care for the safety and well-being of the students. Mr. and Mrs. Watson, we are so lucky to have you and we appreciate everything you do daily for the students and staff of Warren New Tech!
Today, Warren New Tech would like to recognize Juwan Hargrove as our Senior of the day. Juwan has made so much growth since his freshman year of high school and he takes pride in his growth. He always has the biggest smile on his face and truly has a heart of gold. Juwan is very self disciplined when he puts his mind to something and does not give up even when the situation gets tough. During Juwan's first season running track he was determined to increase his stamina and strength. He isn't one of the quiet ones and he knows when to express himself. One thing I admire about him is his effort: to eat healthier, to focus on each workout, and to make it count. ~Evans Juwan has a very strong sense of self. He aspires to acquire a basketball scholarship to college. He is a true example of intrinsic motivation as he persistently projects a positive self image. His maturity is commendable; he engages in introspection and celebrates his personal progress. He is unafraid to look back at his mistakes but he also looks forward to his goals with confidence. - Lee Congratulations, Juwan! Your smile will be greatly missed in the hallway of New Tech but we wish you all the best in your future. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020

Today for our extended Teacher Appreciation Week I would like to recognize my two right hands, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Tanner!!! Mrs. Harris and I joined New Tech together three years ago and I could not ask for a better Administrative Assistant. Mrs. Harris is the picture of what we consider "home grown" because she is a 2012 alumna of New Tech. She completes task before I even have the chance to ask her to do so, it's like she is a mind reader. The students absolutely love and respect her and she feels the same way about them. She is calm under pressure; I have never seen her get upset or anxious about anything. She is always professional and polite even when dealing with irate parents and/or students. She is truly the calm in the storm. I could go on and on about everything she does not only for me but everyone in the building but instead I will simply say, Mrs. Harris you are valued and appreciated more than you will ever know! Mrs. Tanner has been a true asset to the students, staff, and families of Warren New Tech. She advocates for all students and spends countless hours researching resources for our students. She works very closely with all of our students but especially Juniors and Seniors getting ready for college and students who need small group counseling sessions. She is also a resource for teachers to bounce ideas off of and even to get ideas for their most difficult situations. Mrs. Tanner is the guru for 504 plans and most helpful with MTSS. Above all the duties she has to do which are included in her job description, Mrs. Tanner truly loves serving the students in Warren County and it shows by how invested she becomes. Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Tanner, thank you for everything you do. I would truly be lost without the two of you!!!
Warren New Tech would like to recognize, Angel Gilchrist as our Senior of the day. Angel has been a dedicated student who has strived for excellence since her elementary years at Mariam Boyd. She is a natural leader at New Tech and does not hesitate to offer suggestions or advice to her peers. I have had the opportunity to watch Angel blossom into a young woman who has the ability to advocate for herself and others in a rational, respectful manner. She has the ability to think before she speaks, a trait that is difficult even for adults. Without any doubt, this is the Senior I will remember the most and the one I ended up getting along the best with. She will always be "Mi hija". I will miss our dad and daughter talking so much and her way too loud "PADRE" at school. (Mr. De Avila) "Hey Ma". That was the very loud greeting I received every day from Angel. It usually came with a big hug and a huge smile. When Angel was not in the classroom, everyone knew it. She was missed. Angel is very outspoken, always has questions and is an advocate for fairness. She consistently made sure her online work was done on time and her grades were above average. When she completed her daily assignments and was "bored", that is when I had to say, "Angel sit down; Angel not so loud; Angel leave Jabrell alone", and even "Angel go to sleep". She will respond, "Ok ma". I will definitely miss that very vocal leader, who I am sure will make a very bold impact on the campus of NC A&T. (M. Joseph) I associate Angel with her bubbly personality. Each morning as Angel enters the school, she greets me with a warm smile and an enthusiastic “Good morning, Mrs. Tanner!”. What I have enjoyed most about working with Angel, is that she does a great job of advocating for herself. She has sought out many opportunities to support her college ambitions and she continues to appropriately seek assistance from myself, our college advisor and her teachers when she needs it. - Tanner Congratulations Angel! We are so very proud of the very gifted, young woman you are and know you have a very bright future ahead of you. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Good evening New Tech families! This is a friendly reminder that we will have a senior Zoom session tomorrow, May 12th @ 5:00pm. During this session we will go over grades and requirements for seniors as well as discuss graduation. During this session Students and parents will learn when graduation will take place, where it will be held and all other logistics for graduation. It is very important that students and parents join this meeting. Also, all work packets and Chromebooks must to turned into the school next Thursday and Friday, May 21st and 22nd between the hours of 9:00-3:00. Submitting work packets is essential in determining eligibility for earning credits. Also, no student will receive report cards or transcripts until his/her Chromebook has been returned to the school along with the charger.
We will extend Teacher Appreciation into this week because our fabulous staff deserves more than just 1 week. Today I would like to recognize two incredible educators who work very closely with students to meet their individual needs, Mrs. Grantham and Mrs. Joseph. Mrs. Grantham was a retired educator from Franklin County Schools. We hit the jackpot three years ago when she agreed to come out of retirement to join the New Tech Family. Mrs. Grantham runs the Academic Lab and even though on paper Mrs. Grantham is a "part-time" teacher, she donates her own personal time to ensure her students have everything they need. She is known among the students as "Grandma" to her school family "Mrs. G." to most students and my personal favorite "The Snitch" to her students she works the closest with. Mrs. Grantham does not mind picking up the phone to call parents about the good, the bad, and even the ugly. Mrs. Grantham is much more than a teacher to our students, she is truly one of the most positive influences in our school. Thank you Mrs. Grantham for coming out of retirement to serve our students and their families. Mrs. Joseph is the face of New Tech. She has been a part of the New Tech Family for many years. Mrs. Joseph wears many hats at New Tech, any given day you can find her at the front desk, in her classroom or even covering for another teacher in their classroom. She so graciously coordinates Drivers Education for the students at New Tech as well as community service hours and internship hours. Whenever the students have a problem they run to Mrs. Joseph to tell her all about their troubles. Mrs. Joseph's classroom feels like home because it is so colorful and inviting and because Mrs. Joseph always has treats setting out for the students. Anyone who watches Mrs. Joseph interact with her students can see how much she truly loves them and wants the best for every child she meets. Thank you Mrs. Grantham and Mrs. Joseph for your all the work you do for our students at Warren New Tech. I had to recognize the two of you on the same day because both of you work very closely together and because you are the POD squad (along with Mr. Evans and Coach Thompson)!
The senior we would like to recognize today is Jonathan Evans. Jonathan has stood out among his peers as well as teachers during his tenure at Warren New Tech. He began his educational journey at Hollister Elementary School and joined Warren New Tech class of 2020 his freshman year in high school. He plans on attending East Carolina University in the fall. Congratulations Jonathan! I will remember Johnathan for several reasons. He is a very smart guy with quite a strong character who doesn’t mind speaking his mind or standing up for what he believes is right. I will miss his daily comments or jokes at the end of every single class about my clothes or shoes regardless of whether they were new, old, tight, loose. clean, etc. He just couldn’t stop messing with me, especially if Angel was around. His participation during our weekly school family meetings this year was outstanding and once again I could corroborate how honest and smart he is. Good luck Mr. Lechuga. (De Avila) Jonathan is simply unforgettable! I watched this young man mature into a confident, courageous activist. He has a strong sense of self and is undaunted when he identified acts of perceived injustice. He has a strong work ethic and dared to tackle amy academic challenge he encountered. His costume for the Christmas float was simply hilarious and is etched in my memory.- Lee In addition to his academic achievements, Jonathan has become a vocal activist within our school. He advocates for his friends, himself, and for changes within the school itself. The first time that I had the opportunity to talk individually with Jonathan was regarding his senior project. Jonathan recognized a problem within his school and community and came up with the idea to create an app that would connect youth to peer support when needed. - Tanner Congratulations Jonathan!! We wish you great success in your future and know you will accomplish anything you set your mind to!!! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today Warren New Tech would like to recognize, Casey Elliott, as our Senior of the day. Casey is what one may consider the ideal student and has been since her elementary years at South Warren Elementary School. She is always on top of her work load and keeps her grades well above average. She has never been a discipline problem and is known for being a true loyal friend. Casey plans on attending Aveda Institute for Cosmetology in the fall. Casey's work ethic is unparalleled. She strove for excellence and was the perfect scholar. She held very high aspirations and never accepted mediocrity. She took responsibility for her success very seriously and never faltered on her work ethic. When she was absent, there was always an email with her completed tasks. I will never forget her excitement when we worked on the Christmas float last year. The world awaits this "go-getter" Lee Congratulations Casey!!! I know you are going to make your mark on this world! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today I would also like to recognize two other Elective teachers, Mr. De Avila and Coach Thompson for Teacher Appreciation Week!!! Mr. De Avila also joined the New Tech Staff last school year. He is dedicated to immersing students not only in the Spanish language but in the Spanish culture as well. He has the ability to engage the students even when they say they do not want to learn Spanish. Mr. De Avila has created amazing projects that the students take pride in completing and presenting. Mr. De Avila also takes his role as a New Tech "parent" very seriously and keeps a very close eye on all his "children" that belong to him. Thank you Mr. De Avila for your dedication to Warren County. Coach Thompson has been a part of Warren County longer than I can remember. She is a native of the county and very loyal to her home. She has worked with the students at Warren New Tech for at least the past seven years. She has such a great personality and has the ability to push the students beyond what they think is their limit. Not only does she do an amazing job with our students at New Tech, she also is a phenomenal basketball coach as well as Athletic Director for the district. Coach Thompson wears many hats but my favorite hat of hers is being a part of the New Tech family! Thank you Mr. De Avila and Coach Thompson for your dedication to Warren County!!!!
Today, I would like to recognize our Elective Teachers, Mr. Evans and Mrs. Turrentine, for Teacher Appreciation Week!!!! Mr. Evans joined the New Tech family last school year and we are so fortunate to have homegrown educators to work with our students. The students love Mr. Evans and thoroughly enjoy shooting and creating videos in Digital Media class. He has such a calm demeanor about him and is able to truly facilitate learning. Mr. Evans has his students working in collaborative groups with his engaging projects. Mr. Evans goes above and beyond to ensure his students are having fun while learning. Thank you Mr. Evans for giving back to your community by serving the students and parents of Warren County! Mrs. Turrentine is a staple at Warren New that holds us all together. Her knowledge goes beyond the classroom to the total operation of Warren New Tech School. She is one of the most veteran staff members in the building and her loyalty to the students of New Tech shines through every day. You will always find Mrs. Turrentine in her classroom early in the morning making sure she has everything prepared for the students. She has the most calm demeanor about her and the students and adults alike can sense it when they walk into her room. I have never heard Mrs. Turrentine raise her voice, because she does not have to. Her students know her expectations and they exceed her expectations daily. Teaching is definitely Mrs. Turrentine's calling and we are so grateful she chose to pursue her passion in Warren County. Thank you Mr. Evans and Mrs. Turrentine for being a part of the New Tech Family and for everything you do day in and day out for the students!
Today I would like to recognize our Science Department, Ms. Elswick and Mr. Wray, for Teacher Appreciation Week. Ms. Elswick is a first year teacher who joined New Tech by way of Teach for America. During our interview I could tell she was a go getter who was very enthusiastic but I had no idea how deeply her passion ran. Ms. Elswick puts in countless hours in her classroom, you can even find her in her classroom on any given weekend. She is works with her mentor to create engaging projects in hopes her students will develop a love of learning and a love of science that emulates hers. She always finds the positive in every situation and has worked all year with the students on instilling a growth mindset. Mr. Wray came from Jamaica to join our team at New Tech this year. He brought with him a love of Bob Marley and the attitude of "every little thing gonna be alright". You can find Mr. Wray in his classroom having fun with his students and engaging them in labs and learning by hands on exploration any given day. Mr. Wray enjoys learning from the students just as much as he enjoys educating them. It was so fun to watch as a group of Junior boys taught Mr. Wray all about a potato gun and even let Mr. Wray shoot the gun during the Science Fair. Thank you Ms. Elswick and Mr. Wray for joining our team and becoming New Tech Knights!!!
Warren New Tech would like to honor Sha`Kera Davis as our Senior of the day. I remember Sha`Kera as a third grader at South Warren Elementary School. She was just as sweet with such a kind spirit then as she is now. Sha`Kera has always had an infectious laugh that erupts throughout the hallway. I had the honor of having Sha`Kera as a member of my school family this year, and I must say she was always willing to participate in the activities that were planned without any complaints. She has such a bubbly personality that always makes her peers laugh. I am sure whoever comes in contact with her will totally agree with me that her playful personality is one you would always want to be around. A.Pommells Sha`Kera is just a jovial, jubilant soul. She would test my patience but knew her boundaries. Whenever she felt she was on the fence of those markers, She would quickly pull herself back. She was extremely affectionate and her laugh was contagious. Lee Congratulation Sha`Kera! May you continue to shine and do amazing things! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Today, I would like to recognize our Social Studies department, Ms. Wisler and Mrs. Duld, for Teacher Appreciation Week! Ms. Wisler is a first year teacher who came to Warren New Tech straight out of college. Her eagerness to engage her students in meaningful projects is shaping her into an educator students will always remember long after they graduate from high school. Thank you Ms. Wisler for giving your students 100% day in and day out. Mrs. Duld came to Warren New Tech from Pennsylvania. She is also a first year teacher but teaching is her second career. She has a love for teaching and is very passionate about equity and equality in education. Mrs. Duld engages parents in their child's education by reaching out to parents weekly. She puts in countless hours in her classroom after school to ensure she is prepared. She has the ability to create engaging projects that spark the natural curiosity in her students. There is something about a first year teacher's enthusiasm and eagerness to conquer the world that makes us realize that no program, no piece of technology could possibly replace a teacher. Thank you Ms. Wisler and Mrs. Duld for accepting your calling to be an educator and for choosing Warren County to call home.
Today Warren New Tech would like to recognize, Jarvis Branch. Jarvis is a light hearted, quiet young man who always has a laid back personality. It is very rare to see a young man with such a controlled temper but I have never seen Jarvis upset instead he always has a go with the flow attitude. Jarvis always has a contagious smile on his face and has the ability to share his smile with people he passes in the hallway. I had the honor of having Jarvis as a member of my Tanner's Thunder Trolls Family this school year. I will always remember him for being so patient with his "siblings" and always being willing to lend a helping hand without even having to be asked. - Tanner Congratulations, Jarvis! We will miss seeing your smile at New Tech. #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
Calling all seniors and parents!!!! I know you all are curious about your senior's grades and GPA since COVID-19. We will be holding a Zoom session next Tuesday, May 12th at 5:00pm to explain the new grading guidelines and to answer any questions you may have. A Google Document will be sent out to your senior via their school email so they can tell us where they would like for us to send the Zoom link. Please plan on attending our Zoom session at 5:00pm on May 12th so we can answer any questions you may have.
Today, I would like to recognize our Math department for teacher appreciation week. Mrs. Pommells and Mrs. Lewis came in this year, new to North Carolina, new to New Tech but not new to teaching. When I had virtual interviews with both ladies, I knew they had a deep love for teaching and a positive energy about them but I was mesmerized by both of them once I saw them in action. Mrs. Pommells has gotten all of her students excited about math and they are always engaged whenever I go into her room. Mrs. Pommells builds positive relationships with her students and because of that relationship her students have a desire to learn and grow and please her. Mrs. Lewis took on the challenge of teaching upper level math. She teaches Juniors and Seniors which are much calmer than the Freshmen and Sophomores but they come with their own challenges. Mrs. Lewis has a way of applying math to the real world to get the students interested and engaged. She also builds positive relationships which makes her more than just a teacher but a mentor as well. Thank you Mrs. Pommells and Mrs. Lewis for all you do for our students at Warren New Tech! You fit into our school family perfectly!
Today, Warren New Tech would like to honor Ryan Baskerville. Ryan has a "voice" literally and figuratively that is louder than most and he is not afraid of using his "voice" to stand up and fight for what he believes in. Ryan has been a student ambassador since he was a freshman and when I think about what a New Tech Knight looks like, I think of Ryan. He keeps us all on our toes all the time! Ryan plans on attending NC State in the fall though he was accepted to NUMEROUS other colleges. When I first met Ryan, he was an incoming freshman who came into a staff meeting before the school year started. He loudly (and politely) introduced himself to everyone and proceeded to ask a list of questions way too long for anyone to answer. It's safe to say I feared his energy and drive based on this first impression, and I was content with not teaching the freshmen class that year. Since then, that drive and energy has landed him at North Carolina State Univeristy in the fall, and I am proud to have witnessed his anything but quiet journey. Just like Shangela, I know he will continue to make the whole world scream halleloo! - Farrell I admire Ryan's ability to speak for what he believes knowing he may be the only one in the room to have this belief. He has a natural curiosity and a love for learning. He is never afraid to speak his mind and is a completely blunt, Ryan Baskerville. - Wisler I first met Ryan three years ago when I visited Warren New Tech High School with a group of 8th grade students as they were beginning to make the choice of which of the three high schools they would be attending. Ryan was one of the Student Ambassadors that sat on the panel and gave the tours. I remember how impressed I was with his confidence and his enthusiasm about his education and his school. Over the next three years, I look forward to having Ryan as our tour guide during our annual visit to New Tech. When I made the decision to join the Warren New Tech faculty, he was one of the students that I was the most excited to work with and get to know. - Tanner Congratulations Ryan! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
It's School Nurse Appreciation Day!!! Warren New Tech would like to give a huge shout out to Nurse Williams!! Nurse Williams goes above and beyond for all students in Warren County. She has her scheduled times when she in the building but she is on call ALL the time. She is always patient and kind and gives her undivided attention no matter if she is working with a student or staff member. We are very fortunate to have such a caring and experienced nurse. Thank you, Nurse Williams, for all you do for the students and staff members of Warren County!!!
It's teacher appreciation week and today I would like to recognize our English Department, Mr. Farrell and Mrs. Lee. Mr. Farrell and Mrs. Lee have the reputation of being brutal but they also have the reputation of pushing students and getting results. These two educators have very high expectations and hold their students accountable. I have SO many students who complain about the workload that Mr. Farrell gives or the projects that Mrs. Lee assigns but I have seen those same students come back after graduation to say they were prepared for college after their English classes at WNTHS. Thank you Mr. Farrell and Mrs. Lee for your dedication to the students at WNTHS!
Today Warren New Tech would like to recognize Shariyahn Bailey. Shariyahn has stepped up to be a true leader this school year. Shariyahn pushes through even on the days she does not have the energy to do so. I have seen so much growth in Shariyahn and I know she will have a bright future because she is a go getter and hard worker. I will always remember Shariyahn's great piece of help and participation when she was added to my school family during her Junior year. Additionally, She was usually a challenging student who made me grow as a teacher. Among many moments, I will also remember the day she decided to participate in a project because she felt connected with the activity, the funny thing is she had been angry with me and it had been a week since she didn't say a word in class. After that day she was back on track and laughing out loud as usual. (Mr. De Avila) Congratulations, Shariyahn! #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
The first senior we will recognize this week is, John Adcock. John is the type of person who is always polite to everyone he encounters and is always willing to go the extra mile. John has exceeded both socially and academically during his tenure at New Tech. He is an all around exceptional student who has a very bright future because of his strong work ethic. John is one of the seniors that I will always remember. Apart from his commitment to his academic work, how can I forget the dancing moves he and his friends often taught me in class?! Priceless.-Wray John's calm demeanor and polite personality has earned him a special place in my heart since 2016. John was the consumate student who was willing to go the "extra mile" to help me complete a project. He was very hands on and got excited about putting practical skills to a learned theory. I will never forget his spirit of community and his unquestionable generosity. - Lee Congratulations John #WNTHSCLASSOF2020
