Elm Futures program wraps up for summer; three new Elm U graduates
By Paul Asselin
This Summer we ran four (4) Elm Futures 4-Day Camps with a total of 19 students attending. One of the classes was a partnership with Gateway Regional in Huntington where interested students were able to choose electrical as a possible career path and attend our Futures Program.
All of the students that attended showed improvement over the four days and there were some exceptional students both from the vocational school and the high school. Depending on workforce needs some students may be offered a Co-Op position with Elm this Fall. We also had one student that graduated from vocational school this year and was offered an opportunity to work at Elm.
This program was as successful as could be expected to look for talented future Elm Employees but also give individuals who did not go to vocational school a chance to work with hand tools and feel the satisfaction of completing a project that they built with their own hands.
Hats off to the graduates!
Congratulations to recent Elm University graduates John Whalen, Seth Tebo and Samantha LaPlante!
