Lucerne Valley High School junior Landon Lindner was recognized by Mojave Desert Career Pathways as a CTE (Career Technical Education) Student of the Year.
Landon, who maintains a 4.0 grade point average, was nominated by Mr. Troy Van Bavel, his Agricultural Science (AG) fabrication teacher.
“Landon is a very positive and motivated student,” Mr. Van Bavel said. “This past year Landon served as an FFA Officer where he had 100% attendance to meetings and served as a delegate at the sectional, regional and state levels.”
While the high school was on virtual learning mode, Landon continued to make an effort to provide his own transportation to attend the in-person cohorts. He worked on projects that involved welding, wood working and school improvement projects.
“Landon is always working hard to improve himself and always does more than what is expected of him,” Mr. Van Bavel said.
Mojave Desert Career Pathways is a consortium of nine High Desert school districts that together provide a region-wide, collaborative approach to career pathway alignment. The school districts include Apple Valley, Baker Valley, Barstow, Hesperia, Lucerne Valley, Silver Valley, Snowline, Trona, and Victor Valley Union. MDCP also serves as a contact point for assisting regional career programs.
