John Beiler, an Industrial Maintenance student, was named local winner of the Tennessee Technology Center at Shelbyville Outstanding Student of the Year program earlier this month. The announcement was made by Kate Jacobs, Outstanding Student of the Year coordinator.

Beiler lives in Huntland with his wife Christie and children Brent, Brandon, and Beth. He is one of a select few chosen by Nissan North America in Decherd to participate in the Maintenance Apprenticeship Program. He will move on to regional competition to be held in December in Nashville.

The Tennessee Board of Regents, Office of Tennessee Technology Centers, sponsors the Outstanding Student of the Year program statewide.

"The Outstanding Student of the Year program seeks to spotlight the importance of technical education in today's world of work and to recognize outstanding achievement by students attending Tennessee Technology Centers," Jacobs said.

Four other students were recognized for their outstanding achievement, character and leadership: Eric Hill, an Industrial Electricity student from Manchester, Rhett Turner, a Computer Information Technology student from Tullahoma, Jay Eaton, an Industrial Maintenance student at the Fayetteville campus, from Fayetteville, and Josue Flores, an Industrial Maintenance student from Shelbyville.

Beiler was nominated by his instructor, Butch Arnold, and chosen by selected TTC faculty and staff members through an internal screening process.
