Lake Technical Center’s fall program advisory committee reception will be held Monday, September 17, 2012, at 6:00 p.m. in the lobby of the main campus located at 2001 Kurt Street in Eustis. Students from the Commercial Foods and Culinary Arts program will display their culinary talents by preparing and serving hors d’oeuvres and desserts. Dr. Culpepper, Lake Technical Center Director, will conduct the program.
In addition, Lake Technical Center has applied for reaffirmation of accreditation with the Commission of Council on Occupational Education (COE) in compliance with Commission criteria and the “visiting team” will be in attendance at the advisory reception.
Following the reception, the advisory committee members will meet in their given program areas. Each of the 29 career-technical education certificate programs has an advisory committee made up of members from business and industry that provide guidance for program development. According to Dr. Culpepper, “Lake Tech’s advisory committee members are very important to us because they help ensure that our programs are industry standard and that we are providing the appropriate training to prepare our students for employment.” Committee members meet several times each year to give input on program curricula. They play a key role in the success of Lake Tech by serving as guest speakers, making donations, hiring our grads, and providing co-op opportunities.
Lake Technical Center’s mission is to meet the educational needs of the community by offering a variety of high quality career-technical training opportunities. Lake Tech’s fall 2012 semester opened strongly with many programs still accepting new students.
