Congratulations to Mr. David Prevost for receiving the Walker Career Center Director’s Leadership Award at the 2019 “Set A Good Example” awards banquet held on May 5 at the Marriott East. According to the Director, Dr. Rogers, “David has been here for many years, and he has not changed since I’ve known him. He is a leader and he gets stuff done. He helps students, staff and community members all hours of the day, the night and on weekends. It is important to recognize a leader among us to look up to.” The fact that David has remained the same generous, kind, hard-working and young-at- heart man for more than 50 years in Warren is what makes him the “Fresh Prints of Warren”.
“Help” from David does not just include helping students learn during the five classes he teaches during the day. It also means assisting hundreds of people outside of school hours. To help him in printing tens of millions of pages for every MSD of Warren school and support facility, David depends on the talents of his print production manager, Billie Jo Haeberle, his current and past students and seasonal help. Some of the services provided by David and his team consist of formatting, editing and printing forms, flyers, books, booklets, programs, post cards, and business cards. David is notorious for working with panicked staff members to help them resolve their “emergency” printing needs.
David is a WCC faculty member in the Engineering and Technical Education Department where he currently teaches Intro to Engineering Design and Intro to Communications. He is also an adjunct faculty member at Vincennes University which allows him to teach Graphic Design, Imaging and Layout for dual credit. Mr. Prevost is also a board member of the Warren Alumni Association.
As if he were not busy enough, David is constantly trying to find ways to provide more services to save the township money. Under David’s leadership, the print shop has purchased equipment to increase its printing production, and equipment to expand services that now include printing large banners, yard signs, T-shirts and more.
David’s roots in Warren go even deeper than his 39 year teaching career. With his education starting in kindergarten at Moorhead Elementary, David continued on to Heather Hills Elementary and Creston Jr. High before graduating from Warren Central High School in 1975. After completing his bachelor’s degree at Ball State University, David had a short stay at Whiteland High School before gaining employment in Warren Township in production printing in 1980 and began teaching position at Walker Career Center in 1982.
In his life outside of education, David has been married for “30 wonderful years” to his wife Sandy. During that time, they raised two sons-Sam and Brian; and two daughters-Laura and Katie. David’s joy of carpentry was put to good use when he and his team built the family’s home in Avon where he and Sandy currently reside. David is an Elder for his church family, and he actively participates in a farm-to-community project. Finally, David finds happiness in the simple pleasure of being outdoors in nature.
For his dedication and commitment to Warren Township, we will be forever grateful to have the “Fresh Prints of Warren”!
