NEW TEACHER FEATURE - Get to know them ….
Tri Star has added four faculty members to its teaching staff for the 2020-21 school year. They are:
Taylor Hesse. Ms. Hesse will teach the Engineering Technology program. She is only the third Engineering teacher that Tri Star has had and follows Keith Westrick who retired.
Alisa VanOverstraeten will teach the newest program at Tri Star – I.T. Cybersecurity. The I.T. Cybersecurity program was started because of the demand for specialists in this career field.
Brian Hess. Mr. Hess will be taking over the Automotive Technology program. He replaces Jim Dorsten who retired this year. Ironically, Mr. Hess was a student in the automotive program during the first year that Dorsten taught at Tri Star.
Aaron Schmitt. Mr. Schmitt took the reins of the Welding program from Brent Tippie who left Tri Star for an industry-based position.
