She has been a Claymont High School cheerleader for three years, is involved in HOSA Future Health Professionals at BCC and hopes to attend college for physical therapy assisting. 

Her instructor, Mr. Jamey Harlan nominated her because of her exceptional dedication to maintaining a busy school and extra-curricular schedule, along with her communication skills.

“Savannah exemplifies the parameters of being a good communicator. She is a great listener. She shows this all the time but especially when she is serving as a mentor to my junior students,” he said.

Griffin plans to become a dispatcher after high school while attending EMT school. He is also considering firefighting as a career. Griffin was nominated by Law Enforcement instructor Bucky Myers for being a great leader. 

“He is extremely reliable and has never asked for anything. He is just a good, all-around hard-working kid. I am just impressed with his can-do attitude,” she said.

October’s Adult Student of the Month is Utility Lineworker student Tanner Fabynick. Fabynick is a graduate of Garaway High School and previously worked at Wayne Garage Door before starting classes at Buckeye. Upon graduation, Fabynick wants to get a job at AEP as a lineman.
