AKCCL Highlights #1 CTE Program Student: Christina Dickerson

  Christina Dickerson - Our # 1 Student  Christina Dickerson, a young mother of three year-old twin girls and another two year old daughter is currently the top welding student in our program. Christina has endured homelessness and unemployment as a single mother this summer, but through it all, only missed two days of class while at times having to bring her girl to school with her.  Despite living out of a motel she is determined to leave a legacy for her girls.  Come out and help us celebrate Christina Dickerson and "Women In Welding". We invite individuals to come out and be a blessing to this family. Our hope is to get her into stable housing, provide food, and clothing for her and her girls.

CTE Certified Graduates Celebrated July 29 (program details included)

  CTE Welding, Pipefitting, and Electrical Accelerated Program Core Credential and Level 1 Certified Graduates Summer 2022. We are so proud of our students who chose to pursue more than what their environment presented this summer.  They chose to position themselves to overcome crime, violence, and intergenerational poverty, by participating in our CTE workforce certification program. Thanks to the Office of the Mayor President, ReCAST Coalition, Royalty Welding, Glen Oaks HS, EBR CTEC, and various supporters we were able to support and develop young men and women from across the parish.   Come out and help us celebrate them this Friday, July 29th at 6:00 pm at the Family and Youth Service Center located at 1120 Government St. Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70805.    Special thanks to our instructor team Travis Albert, Greg Chapman, and Niquitia Matthews.  We also want to thank Ms. Tangi Milton, Principle Robert, Signater, Evelyn Blanson, Associate Superintendent Ben Necaise, and CTEC Director
