Courtesy photo MANISTIQUE – Benjamin Holbrook earned Career and Technical Education’s highest award, the Joseph Hampton Achievement Award, at the Intermediate School District’s recent awards presentations.

As part of the Hampton Award, Holbrook was presented with the $1,000 Joseph Hampton/Ivan Ryan Scholarship. The Hampton award is presented annually to a student who has shown outstanding achievement in his/her Career and Technical Education program.

Holbrook is a Manistique High School senior, enrolled for the past two years in the ISD building trades program. Holbrook applied his skills in a class project that involved complete construction of a 1656 square foot garage for a customer in the community, and he was group leader on a 5-person team that competed in the U.P. Construction Skills Challenge.

Holbrook plans to attend Michigan State University before entering an apprenticeship program to become a Master Electrician.

Koltyn Hubble was awarded the Dr. Frederick Mitchell Award and $750 scholarship. The award is in memory of Dr. Mitchell, who was president and founder of Manistique Manufacturing and Technology.

During Hubble’s two years in the ISD automotive technology program, he learned how to diagnose problems and repair brakes, transmissions, electrical and exhaust systems. He placed fourth in the regional SkillsUSA competition twice and plans on participating in the Bay College welding program and eventually work in the oil industry.

Each program section selects an outstanding student to be the Student of the Year.
