Accounting Operations

Administrative Office Specialist

This was another busy week for the Accounting and Administrative Office Specialist students. The week started with Ms. Hayes giving a presentation on Customer Service to prep the students participating in the Customer Service contest at SkillsUSA next week. Tuesday, the class student leaders gave a fun and engaging presentation on “Nonverbal Communications.” Everyone loved this presentation; they were able to play charades in order to practice their new skills! Wednesday, the students participated in another presentation offered by the United Way on “Managing Your Credit.” Finally, Thursday the students organized a Valentine’s Day party to wind down from the week.

Pharmacy Technician

Our Pharmacy Tech II students learned how to navigate a med station. Students learned how to create medication profiles and configure inventory of the most essential drugs needed for easy access of nurses and health care providers. Pharmacy technicians must closely monitor inventory and restock the items when they run below par level.

Professional Culinary Arts & Hospitality

Baking and Pastry Arts

Students from the Professional Culinary Arts and the Baking programs researched, created, cooked, and baked in preparation for a wine pairing class held after hours on the Lake Technical College campus. Food has to taste good of course, but it is often said that we “eat with our eyes first!”

Firefighting/EMT Combo

On February 15, a ceremony was held for 24 students who completed the Firefighting portion of the Combo class. For three of the students, they have already completed EMT as well, so they are on the hunt for their first job in the field. The other 21 will be attending the EMT class on the Eustis campus over the next couple of months! Congrats to the new brothers and sisters in the Fire Service.

Adult Basic Education (GED prep and ABE)

Mrs. Ross’ Adult Education students have really been focusing on punctuation this week (oh, the drama of the comma). We’ve covered a lot of ground on fragments and run-on sentences, as well as delving into misplaced modifiers and parallel structure. We had some sweet gains this week with four of our students moving forward to the next level in their GED journey!  Congratulations, all!

Other Adult Ed students went to visit their career program of interest – Culinary!  All the chefs and students gave them a great experience.  Students learned a lot, had fun, and got a “taste” of what to expect in the culinary program. Thank you Chef Koenig and crew!

ESOL students had a blast incorporating Valentine’s Day into their learning activities this week! One of the things our advanced students did was to write their own soap operas. These skits had ingenious plot twists, compelling characters and dialogue, and loads of laughs to be had by both our audience and the actors. Creating these storylines was a wonderful group exercise in coordinating ideas and in communication. Our students did an amazing job! Bravo!
