LTC Honors First Service Sector Apprentices at Banquet
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI –
Thirty four apprentices were honored Monday at Lakeshore Technical College's annual Apprenticeship Completion Banquet held at Millhome Supper Club in Kiel.
The banquet recognized the completion of the paid-related classroom instruction for individuals in LTC's apprenticeship programs. In these programs, workers earn while they learn the practical and theoretical aspects of highly skilled occupations. LTC's registered apprentices are sponsored by employers and paid hourly wages to attend LTC in their specific trades.
New to the LTC apprenticeship program this year, the first completers of the Child Care Services Apprenticeship were honored. Tiffany Tyler and Flavia Calina, both of Sheboygan, represented the first apprenticeship program in the service sector beyond the industrial and construction trades by addressing the audience about their new journeyworker status.
“Apprenticeship has been recognized for more than 100 years,” said Leigh Ann Kramer, Early Childhood Program Chair at LTC. “It is quite an honor for our program to be included. I'm pleased by the recognition Tiffany and Flavia have earned and I know they will be great representatives.”
Jon Waldhuetter, Academic Dean at Moraine Park Technical College, was the guest speaker at the banquet.
