Academic Upgrading (LBS) Leads to a Bright Future
We are proud to offer a follow up story on one of our former Academic Upgrading learners, Lisa Smook.
Lisa completed her upgrading in Academic Upgrading (LBS) and was the recipient of the Hamilton Spectator Adult Learner Award in 2012. Lisa then entered the St. Charles Credit program and obtained her High School Diploma.
Upon completion, Lisa entered Mohawk College for her E.A. certification. Another successful diploma acquired.
Hard work and determination did not stop Lisa there!
Lisa is now at Laurier University. With her Mohawk Diploma Lisa could transfer credits to the Work and Employment Program at Laurier University so that she could obtain her degree in 3 years as opposed to 4 years. This program, once completed, will open the doors to a wonderful career allowing Lisa to work in the Human Resources Management field.
Lisa is enjoying her time at Laurier University. As Lisa says, “The best experience I could have since I improved myself at St. Charles….. In the future, I would be honored if I can be a spokesperson for you and the school, by encouraging others who need our guidance to come forward and make St. Charles the best experience for future education.”
Congratulations, Lisa! Keep up the hard work and please stay in touch!
