Time to get to work

By KELLEY SMITH Staff WriterMay 20, 2019

La PORTE COUNTY — Students in the La Porte County Career and Technical Education programs at the A.K. Smith Area Career Center have been busy preparing for the next phase in their life – and their hard work has begun to pay off.

According to CTE Director Audra Peterson, her students have earned 86 college certificates and 2,470 college credits from Ivy Tech just this year.

In fact, 26 of this year’s seniors each earned two college certificates, giving them the unique opportunity to walk the stage in their college graduation last weekend, a few weeks before they’ll accept their high school diplomas.
