HUMAN SERVICES

Cosmetology, Facials Specialty, Nails Specialty
It has certainly been a very busy couple of weeks in our Cosmetology Department. Our students have become pro’s at social distancing and safety measures to keep themselves as well as our clients safe.

Last week, the Day Program freshman students learned how to perform a manicure and spent the rest of the week perfecting their skills. This week, the instructors provided instruction and a demo for the facials portion of the program, so the students spent the week perfecting facials and manicures. They are doing awesome and really bonding with their demo partners, mannequins! When COVID-19 gives you lemons, Cosmo makes lemonade!

Our Day Program seniors have been so excited to take clients the past two weeks. They have kept busy giving clients total makeovers as the pandemic has kept many of them away from the hair salons. We are very thankful for our loyal “Looks to Create” clients! In addition to working in the Salon, the seniors have also been diligently balancing clients, demonstrating their practical competencies and completing their testing. For many of the seniors, this is crunch time as they are almost to completion of the program. We also had a few Senior’s take their FINAL’S and they knocked em’ outta the park! That make us very proud instructors!

Partnering with Vermeer MV Solutions

Partnerships with business and industry are the key to the success of our students and of Lake Technical College. Recently, Tim Fischer, General Manager of Florida Operations at Vermeer MV Solutions, sent us the following email:

Welding 2 100220 Academic Affairs ~ 10/02/20

“I just wanted to take a minute and thank Dr. Culpepper and Bob Sherwood for the partnership we have nurtured over the years with Lake Technical College. They truly have become an integral part of our business and the partnership is a win-win.  We currently have 20 Lake Tech graduates/students employed in our manufacturing facility here in Okahumpka. That equates to 34% of our production staff!!!!  Not only the quality of the skilled labor (mainly welders, but we do have some assemblers and material handlers on staff as well) is top notch but they are nurturing young adults into being responsible, ‘good people’.  We look forward to continuing this relationship long into the future and furthering the partnership.  Keep up the good work Lake Tech!!!”

ADULT EDUCATION

Adult Basic Education/GED® Prep
The adult education students celebrated “Adult Education and Family Literacy Week.” One of our former students, John, is now a published poet. He came and shared his story of struggling, persevering, and not giving up on his dreams of writing. John inspired our students and read one of his poems from the recent publication of a collection of poems, “Streams of Light.” Two of our adult education instructors, Colleen Avelli and Laura Ross have poems in the same publication. Thank you, John, for taking time to inspire us.

In addition, another graduate, Josh, stopped by to talk to the students about what literacy meant to him. Josh and John were in class at the same time and encouraged each other along the way.
