Rob Adcock plans to become a licensed electrician


Rob Adcock will graduate in May 2023, and the White County High School senior has already planned his future and set himself on a path for success.

Adcock, who has a 3.7 grade point average and has been following the high school’s program of study in Environmental and Natural Resource Management, said he found his career while involved with White County’s FFA program.

“FFA was a good learning experience and created a community around the agricultural field,” Adcock said. “I actually became interested in becoming a licensed electrician after an FFA competition.”

Adcock plans to attend TCAT McMinnville next school year where he will pursue his career choice, saying the problem solving that comes with the job is what intrigues him most.

“Of course, there is job security in the field, too,” Adcock said. “No matter what, electricians will always be a necessary field.”

Adcock will graduate with a couple of college credits and an OSHA 10 General Industry certification to his name, having taken both American History 2010 and American History 2020 as dual enrollment classes through White County’s partnership with Motlow State Community College.

“Mr. Brown’s DE history was one of the best and structured classes I’ve ever taken. He is one of the best teachers,” Adcock said, and added that he would encourage freshmen who are just starting out at WCHS to enroll in any dual enrollment classes that might be available while they are at White County. “They are a great learning experience.”

As for his interest in agriculture and the FFA, despite plans to become an electrician, Adcock is likely to still be found involved in the farming and agricultural community throughout White County as his interests include agricultural work, fishing, and hunting.

As for how the WCHS faculty members view Adcock’s future, they feel the sky’s the limit for the Class of 2023 senior.

“Rob Adcock is a highly intelligent and mature young man.  He is both a credit to his class and the entire White County High School Community,” Mr. Brown, at WCHS, said. “He is the type of student that makes our whole community proud and optimistic about our county’s future.”
