Leadership Lake was the in the House!
On Wednesday, 28 members of the 2019 Class of Leadership Lake met at Lake Technical College for an educational panel, lunch, and a tech career competition. The culinary students prepared a special lunch and then the fun began. The class members divided into four teams and welded, rolled perms, made hospital beds, virtually spray painted a car hood, filled pill bottles, and loaded patients into the ambulance in the EMS building. The winning team received a $500 scholarship to present to a current or future Lake Tech student.
Correctional Officer Graduation
This week, eight new Correctional Officers graduated from Lake Technical College’s Institute of Public Safety. These men and women will take their state exam and then be ready to work in the Lake County Jail, the state prisons, or the federal prisons. Their class motto was “We Face What you Fear.” In addition, one student was in the Crossover program. This means that she is already a certified law enforcement officer and she took the training so she can also be certified as a correctional officer. Congratulations to all the students.
