Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School held our first annual 8th Grade Open House on October 30th. Over 360 families toured the campus and learned about the various career options available. While the students were able to interact with different vocational shops their parents learned more about academics, extra-curriculars, and sports.
The event was well -received and we look forward to welcoming the new students next fall.

The class of 2023 students from the Legal Protective Services career program at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School are bringing an important public safety presentation about how to prevent scams and fraudulent practices that target the elderly to several area senior citizen centers. These presentations will help seniors learn how to identify and respond to scammers. The students’ aim is to prevent elderly community members from falling victim to illegal practices that could drain their savings, endanger, or frighten them.
Students in the Legal Protective Services career program are interested in careers that involve public service and law enforcement. They have independently researched the information in their presentations including interviewing law enforcement officers in our surrounding communities. These intergenerational public service presentations also provide the students with practice in communication and presentation skills.

Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School teacher USCG PA2 Lisa LaPlante interviews Army MAJ Maurine Daw, a Vietnam Veteran who spent two tours working as a nurse caring for wounded soldiers in 1966-1967 and 1970-1971. MAJ Daw was stationed at the 8th Field Hospital in Nha Trang, 24th Evac Hospital in Long Binh, and the 95th Evac Hospital in Da Nang. Tri-County students read Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried, a collection of short stories about American soldiers’ experiences in the Vietnam War.
First-hand accounts help the students understand the many facets of the Vietnam War. The interviews help them understand the context of the literature they are studying in class. Furthermore, veterans talk openly and frankly to the students, and my students are given an opportunity to directly engage with the veteran to ask him/her thoughtful questions. This event leads to an even deeper understanding of the issues surrounding the war including its aftermath and consequences.
