FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

6/2/2015

CLEVELAND, WI – 

Twenty nine apprentices were honored May 18 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. 

The apprenticeship completers were recognized by keynote speaker, John Lukas, Vice President of LDI, Inc. in Manitowoc. Lukas is an active advocate for apprenticeship by serving on several committees, both locally and at the state, that center around apprenticeship and Lukas is a member of the State of Wisconsin Apprenticeship Consortium through the Department of Workforce Development.
