Coleman Caddell

Congratulations to Allen Thornton’s Student of the Month for September: Coleman Caddell. Coleman is a senior from Waterloo High School who has attended the Engineering program at ATCTC for two years. According to his instructor, Mrs. Amy Bolding, Coleman is an exceptional student with a tremendous work ethic and attitude. He is currently President of SkillsUSA and a member of the National Technical Honor Society at ATCTC in which he has been awarded a scholarship. He has obtained certification in Autodesk Inventor through his classes at ATCTC, and will soon be credentialing in Autodesk REVIT.

At Waterloo High School, Coleman was named Shoals Scholar Dollar Student of the Year last year as a junior. He was also the Alabama Boy’s State recipient where he was elected as US Senator. Coleman is also a member of the football team at Waterloo.

Coleman is a well-rounded, enthusiastic student who gives 110% at everything he is involved in. We expect great things from Coleman in the future as he pursues an engineering degree after graduation with hopes to obtain a Masters of Business Administration (MBA). Congratulations and Good Luck to Coleman!
