Renee Smith, an Administrative Office Technology student from Cumberland County, has been honored as the 2023, Summer Student of the Term at Tennessee College of Applied Technology Crossville.

Each term an outstanding student is selected to represent each full-time program taught at Tennessee College of Applied Technology Crossville.  These students are selected by their instructors to represent their class as a Student of Merit.  The instructors consider grades, work ethics, and extracurricular activities when choosing their program’s student representatives.  These names are then reviewed and a TCAT Student of the Term is chosen.  The winner receives a scholarship provided by the TCAT General Advisory Council.

According to the Administrative Office Instructor, Wanda Reid, "Rene comes into not only class, but the building every day with a big smile on her face eager to learn.  Her happiness is contagious and is felt by those around her, as she encourages her classmates when they struggle.  Rene has the skills, personality and work ethic that will make her excel in any position after graduation. Students like Rene motivates me to be a better instructor and makes me excited to do my job every day!"
