Her excitement for dentistry is evident as is her genuine kindness towards her patients. I was pleased to hear of her academic accomplishments." Hannah's future career aspirations include continuing to work at Dr. O'Hara's office as a dental assistant while studying to become a dental hygienist. Upon graduating from dental hygiene school, her ultimate goal is becoming a dentist.

As Hannah's Dental Assisting I and II instructor for the past two years, Antoinette Kahan states, "I have watched this very diligent teenager mature into a fine, caring, and highly capable young woman. She possesses the internal drive, determination, and positive work ethic not usually seen in her peer group. Her high academic achievements, zeal for life, and love of humanity will make her a tremendous asset to the workforce, academic institution, and dental community."

Dog House for Hermitage Elementary Adminstrators

The Dog House has arrived! On a recent trip to Hermitage Elementary, excitement was in the air as students noticed the new arrival to their school Lobby. The Construction Technology students from the Technical and Career Education Center (Tech Center) built, delivered, and assembled a brand new over-sized dog house. The Dog House was used as inspiration for the students to raise $6,000.00 for the American Heart Association during the Jump Rope for Heart event held in February. If the students achieved the goal, Mrs. Holly Coggin, Hermitage Principal and Mr. Deck, Hermitage Assistant Principal, agreed to spend the day in the Dog House. The theme for JRFH is Build "Pawsitive" Heart Habits and the school used little dog key chains as fundraising incentives. That is where the idea for the dog house came from. While Hermitage didn't quite meet their ambitious goal, the students did raise about $3,800 so the principal's agreed to sit in the Dog House after the SOL Pep Rally to hand out the "doggie bags" containing the dog key chain incentives that the students earned from the event. The school plans to paint the doghouse but the first grade students made some beautiful flowers in art class! This project was a hugely successful collaboration between the Tech Center's Construction Technology students and Hermitage Elementary's Ms. Roberta Cheechio, PE Specialist/Wellness Ambassador and the (see pictures) For questions Contact Sharon Gatz @ Sharon.Gatz@vbschools.com.

Practical Nursing Students Participate in Simulated Terrorist Attack

The Practical Nursing III instructors of the Virginia Beach School of Practical Nursing; Diane Mills and Barbara Evard designed a mock terrorist attack and resulting disaster scenario for the senior nursing students to triage and treat. Dr. Delepine's Public Safety students acted as the victims of the attack. Moulage of wounds and life threating injuries were role- played by his students. Nursing students were tasked to treat, classify and oversee the care of the walking wounded, the near death victims, and unstable victims during the ensuing attack. The room was blackened, audio and visual effect were ongoing during the simulation. This was intended to portray the role of the nurse in a potential or actual disaster situation. Mr. Phillips' Television Production class filmed and role-played the presence of the media at this unfortunate event. It is our goal as health care providers to be ever ready to meet the needs of our community. Please see the video below about the event.

Students set foundation for 11th VBEF house project

Shortly after the unveiling of the Virginia Beach Education Foundation's (VBEF) 10th house project at 1909 Evar Place, Technical and Career Education (TCE) Center students began work on the 11th house — right next door. Students enrolled in the TCE Center's masonry program have been working weekly, weather permitting, to set the foundation for the new house located at 1905 Evar Place. The VBEF program, The House Students Built (THSB), partners TCE students with experienced professionals in the community to construct a single-family dwelling for public sale. To date, 10 homes have been constructed, and net profits from the sale of each home support the VBEF's Adopt A+ Grants program. Photos of the work on the 11th house are available on the VBEF Facebook page and information about the 10th house for sale is available here. For more information about the THSB program, contact VBEF coordinator Debbie Griffey at debbie.griffey@vbschools.com or 757-263-1337.
