Senior Katie Chookagian, a senior in the Dental Careers program, may be one of the sweetest students to grace the halls at Upper Bucks County Technical School. She is always thinking of others and always in a good mood.
For many good reasons, UBCTS faculty members selected her as the Student of the Month for October.
Dental teacher Marianne Deose described Katie as a “dream student” and listed some of her accomplishments:
“Katie has been an amazing asset to our school and will be missed after graduation," said Deose. "We appreciate all she has done and wish her the best of luck in the future.”
Katie competed in the Pennsylvania State HOSA Leadership Conference, performing Dental Science Skills. She completed her OSHA and First Aid Certification. She is currently working on her radiology license and looking into a Co-Op for the near future.
Katie is a member of the QCHS TV News class and is going to create advertisements to help promote UBCTS.
Katie said she has enjoyed the many hands-on experiences and leadership opportunities that UBCTS has offered her. She plans to attend Bucks County Community College to complete general electives and then head off to another college to become a dentist. She also is interested in some type of job in the fashion industry.
“I’m interested in both!" she says. "I'm keeping my options open for now.”
