A very big thank you to John White for helping today. John does a great job talking to students and being real about going to work and having a career. John is a Sheet Metal Worker for Speer Mechanical.
Mr. S always tells his students that you never know when a partner might stop bye to see how the students are working, so today I did a surprise visit, guess what, every student was working on something, many were cleaning up for the day, nobody was standing in one spot for long. We get some great students from C-TEC, keep up the good work Mr. S!
Santa came to visit all the children at SMART LU#24 Christmas party! All the children got to visit with Santa 2 times and there were plenty of presents to go around. Dempsey's catered and the food was great, my favorite was the meatballs. A big thank you to Jeff Hunley & Jeff Rush for putting this party together and doing all the work for our families!
I must make an apology, after taking what I thought was many magnificent pictures, it appears I bought a camera smarter than me, because I did not take 1 picture. I know I had some really good shots, but i just did not hold that button down long enough. I am sorry, Rob Gartner.
If you or someone took a picture, please send me a copy so I can add them to this blog. Thank you
Six third year apprentices earned a welding certification today, NICE JOB!
SMART LU#24 has hundreds of certified welding working today and most of them have been tested at one of our four training centers. Many people say that being a good welder is what keep you working when times are slow.
