Some exciting new partnerships are forming at Lakeland High School. Next school year, in a partnership with Conexus and Hire Technologies, students will be able to begin a program in Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics. Students going through the two year program will be able to earn college credits and earn national certifications that they can take directly into the Advanced Manufacturing workforce. LaGrange County is in great need for local talent in advanced manufacturing and the school hopes to offer talented students who want to contribute immediately to the local economy after they graduate.
Along those same lines, Elevate Ventures has been working with the LHS Entrepreneurship classes to give real world feedback on opportunities in Northeast Indiana. On Thursday (4-3-14), Elevate Ventures will be bringing two students from Trine University’s “Innovation One” group to show students how they can move into entrepreneurship as college students when they graduate this June.
Lakeland Schools are actively looking for ways to start a growing network of current students, alums, and local economic partners to leverage local talent and bring homegrown talent back to opportunities in the region.
