Accounting Operations
Administrative Office Specialist

The Accounting Operations and Administrative Office Specialist students participated in Lake Tech’s Career Fair last week. All the students were excited about the new contacts they made and their future possibilities. Numerous students were asked to interview on the spot and many others have since been contacted from the companies. In addition, The AOS students completed their intensive records management course and moved on to the final assignments for the program.

Congratulations to Latrece Taylor and Misty Wheat on the completion of the program! We wish them continued success for the years that lie ahead.

During their 200 hour supervised practicum, students have the opportunity to utilize both administrative and clinical skills learned in the Medical Assistant classroom and clinical environment in a local clinic, physician’s office, or other health care facility.

Enterprise & Applied Cybersecurity

Over the last couple weeks, Enterprise students have had the opportunity to job shadow and assist the IT department one of our advisory board members, Vicky Pyle, with the installation of PC’s and other equipment within the new construction at Advent Health – Waterman. This has been a great experience for the students and Ms. Pyle has been very pleased with our students’ performance! We are working on continuing this relationship in the future after the completion of the new tower.

Welding Technology

For the past six months, lead instructor John Dahler along with Melissa Stephan have been working to take the necessary steps so that the welding portion of the Center for Advanced Manufacturing will be accredited as an AWS Accredited Test Facility (ATF). On Thursday and Friday of last week, the audit inspector was on campus to review manuals, processes, procedures, and the equipment.

As an ATF, we will be able to test welders to the nationally recognized AWS standards. Not only will our students benefit from this accreditation, but the welding community in Lake County and our region will as well.

CNC Production Specialist

On Wednesday, Lake Technical College and NASA signed an agreement so our students will be able to machine parts for the Single Stowage Lockers that help improve the lives of the crews on board. The NASA Kennedy Space Center will provide the design drawings, engineer consultations, and raw materials. Our students will utilize the skills they learn at Lake Tech to model, program, and machine the parts. These parts will go through an inspection, in conjunction with one of our local manufacturing business partners, to ensure the parts meet the strict NASA quality requirements. As part of the students’ learning process, they will review the results of the inspections and hone their own skills even more.

Our advanced ESOL students have begun the process of their spring interviews. They’ve each been assigned a faculty member and are required to get in touch with them via the telephone to schedule an appointment. Each student comes prepared with a list of pre-printed questions, which they created together through a prior brainstorming process. All of the interviews end with selfie, and then our students come back and present their information to the class. Again, I want to thank our faculty members for being willing to take the time to sit and talk with these students. Each student feels very nervous at the outset, but returns with a buoyant sense of success from having had the experience, and more importantly, in making a new and friendly campus connection.

Our classes continue to be large and busy. Our students are wonderful about helping one another and participating in our learning activities. Our beginning students are working closely on present tense verbs and prepositions. They’ve even used lyrics from popular songs to identify various parts of speech. Our advanced and intermediate students have been reviewing all verb tenses and have been involved in some fun interactive games and conversations as practice. We look forward to more special projects in the coming weeks.
