The Digital Design program held its SkillsUSA Regional “Qualifier” on Thursday. The assignment was for the students to create a full-page magazine advertisement to promote non-theme park tourism in Florida. Finals will be announced next week.
Last week Digital Design 1 students learned measuring in fractions and after their lesson were challenged to beat an educational computer game. These are students who “beat the game” with 3 days of their lesson. Next step… memorizing fraction conversions to decimals against the clock!
Business Management & Administration
As we approach the start of the new semester, we took time to recognize members of our classes that have completed OCPs. Here we see Brandon Goff and Joey Williams who have just completed OCP A.
We also recognized Joyce Williams and Bradley Bryant who have completed their Administrative Office Specialist programs with Lake Tech.
There were many family and friends present and the Child Care room served as the perfect backdrop for the Patient Care Technician graduation ceremony!!! One of the students shared a heartfelt and very moving tribute to Mrs. Girard and to her classmates during the ceremony. There were light refreshments afterward and it was a memorable experience for all. Family and friends were taking pictures galore!!
Law and Public Safety
The Night Law Enforcement Recruits are continuing their Patrol 1 block this week and are getting ready to go to the range in another week.
Trudy Dailey celebrated this week with 17 out of 17 students earning their needed TABE exit scores. Great job to all involved!
