Lennoxville Vocational Training Centre kicks off annual career days

By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

The Lennoxville Vocational Training Center (LVTC) held its annual career days for local elementary and high school students this week. Students from Sherbrooke Elementary, Sunnyside Elementary, and Princess Elizabeth Elementary, as well as Alexander Galt and Richmond Regional high schools had the opportunity to explore the many possibilities that exist in terms of continuing education and career opportunities. Excited and eager to learn, students hopped off the bus and quickly made their way inside where they took part in interactive workshops all while have some fun along the way. According to LVTC Director Luc Rodrigue, the centre has been organizing their elementary and high school career days for many years. “I don’t know exactly how long they have been doing it but I’ve been here for eight years and we have done it every year since,” Rodrigue said, “And I know they held them before that. The idea is, of course, to promote our Centre but more importantly, to show students that there are different paths you can take.”
Wednesday was reserved for elementary school students, and they had the chance to rotate through the various workshops that were organized in some of the classrooms at LVTC. “There were tour guides who took them to different workshops for 20 minutes each,” explained Lise Dougherty, who spearheaded this year’s career day and is the Administrative Assistant at LVCT. “Most of the workshops were very hands-on so the students are engaged. We have all the courses that we have here at LVTC that we offer for the workshops except for two. We have hairdressing and industrial mechanics from our counterpart in Cowansville.” See full story in the Friday, Jan. 24 edition of The Record.
