Fairview’s Shelby Hale - Northwest Tech's Spotlight Presented by Northwest Technology Center
By Travis Sloat
The year 2020 has been a year of firsts for Fairview Yellowjacket junior Shelby Hale. She’s trying her hand at color guard, band, and the digital and design program offered by NW Tech.
“This is my first year in band and color guard, and it’s been fun,” Hale said. “This is also my first year taking classes with Ms. Lee, and it’s been great too.
That career goal, Hale said, is to go to mortuary school in Edmond, become a mortician, then move back to Fairview to further her career. She said NW Tech is a great start to that path.
“It’s a really fun place to learn,” she said. “Ms. Lee is so sweet and nice, and the same goes for all the other teachers I’ve met so far. Anyone who is thinking about taking classes should definitely go meet Mr. Shaw and have him show them around.”
Hale also said there are other driving factors in her life, such as family and friends.
“What drives me to succeed is my family,” Hale said. “They are always there for me even at my lowest points. They always tell me I can do whatever I put my mind to, and if I ever need help with something I know I can always go to them or my friends. They always help me do my best.”
