Congratulations to Allen Thornton’s Student of the MonthAustin Knight

Austin is a 12th grade student from Brooks High School who attends the Engineering class at ATCTC and is currently serving as FBLA State Secretary under the advisement of Mrs. Cindy Davis.  Austin is very involved in many activities on both the ATCTC and Brooks campus.   His involvement in FBLA as a local and state officer has helped to develop leadership skills that will last a lifetime.  Austin is also part of our work-based learning program, and according to Mrs. Davis, because of his determination to be a leader, he has been promoted in his current position.  Mrs. Amy Bolding, Engineering instructor at ATCTC, considers Austin to be responsible, dependable, and an all-around nice young man of good character.  While attending the Engineering class this year, he has earned the Autodesk Inventor Certified User credential.

Austin was also selected as Brooks High School’s “Shoals Scholar Dollar Student of the Year.” 


Austin's plans are to attend the University of North Alabama and major in business.

Congratulations Austin!

Cindy Davis Receives WHNT Channel 19’s

“Tools for Teachers” Award! 

Congratulations to Cindy Davis, who won this month’s WHNT Channel 19 “Tools for Teachers” Award!  Cindy was nominated by ATCTC senior, Austin Knight who submitted an essay explaining how much he appreciates all the time, effort, and hard work that Cindy has put in this year as his FBLA Adviser and mentor.

Cindy is the Work-Based Learning Coordinator for Lauderdale County Schools, but also serves as ATCTC’s FBLA adviser.  This year Austin is Secretary for Alabama FBLA, and his position has required a great deal of time, travel, and commitment.  Thanks to Mrs. Davis for her willingness to “go the extra mile,” and to Austin, for nominating her for this much deserved award!

Channel 19’s Michelle Stark visited the ATCTC campus today (11/4) and surprised Cindy with $319 to use with her students at school!  The clip aired on the 5:00 pm news on Wednesday, November 11.  Click Here for WHNT-TV video/article

Special Thanks to those who came out for our Survivors Paradise!

We hope we made your day as special as you are!
