Â Â It’s that time of year once again. It’s graduation time! Â This is the time when lives are altered and futures are changed.Â Tuesday April 16th at 11:00 A.M we held our Spring 2013 Career Pathways Academies Graduation.Â Â Each of our graduationsÂ calls for bringing in partners from local businesses andÂ industries for our students to network with. We are proud to have the support of this year’s partners who were Baker Roofing, Green Resources, and The City of Wilmington.Â After the festivities and the presentation of certificates each of the graduates has an opportunity toÂ talk to the partners about life and career goalsÂ as well asÂ how these agenices may be able to help them with employment. All of our students take this as anÂ opportunity toÂ use some of the skills that they have beenÂ able to learn while in the academy.
In the picture above is Mr. Allen Wicker one of the hardest workiong graduates in our programs.Â The H.R.D staff is so proud to say that Allen has justÂ let us know that he has already recieved employment as Assistant Project Manager at Ingram Construction.Â Allen when referring to what helped him make thisÂ get the job Allen expresses that, “The Skilled Trades Academy did it for me!”
To our graduates of Spring 2013Â I want to say congratulations andÂ I know you will continue toÂ thrive.
