October Student of the Month: Sponsored by Fastenal


Nolee-Anna Grabowski, a senior from North Pocono High School, has been nominated October Student of the Month by her Cosmetology Instructor, Christine Menichini. “Nolee is an all-around great student. She completes all assignments, participates in class, and is a great peer coach for her classmates. Nolee is a natural-born leader with an outgoing, friendly personality to match. Since her first day at CTCLC, she has always greeted and says “Goodbye Ms. M, Goodbye everyone” before she leaves. She is a pleasure to have in class and a great asset to her community. I believe she is the epitome of a CTC student that makes me #CTCPROUD”, stated Ms. Menichini.  


Nolee will be taking the “early bird” state licensure before the holidays and has gained multiple cosmetology industry certifications like Barbicide and Kids Cut to name a few. While in Cosmetology she has participated in Santa Snippers, Get Pinked, has visited local senior centers, and participated in multiple internal cosmetology competitions. She is very active in her community throughout the year participating in Fill the Backpack/Sneaker Drive, Prom Dress Drive, Free Haircuts for the Homeless, Flowers for Hospice, and more. Nolee is also a CTC Student Ambassador that volunteers for all career exploration days, tours, and shadow days. Nolee recently helped create a CTC video that has been sent to all sending district 9th-grade students to get them interested in the Career Technology Center. 


At North Pocono High School, Nolee is a cheerleader and sits on the North Pocono School Board, as the CTC student representative. She is a Sunday school teacher and a Stylist Assistant at Salon Joy; her mom's business that she looks to join someday.
