During the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of the Teachers and Students of our LARE Institute continues to be top priority, so on July 17, the LARE Institute maintained strict social distancing guidelines as we celebrated this year’s graduating class of 130 individuals ranging in age from 18 to 81 with a Drive-In graduation ceremony!
Our annual LARE Institute Graduation Celebration is an opportunity to recognize our Students for their academic accomplishments. Our Students work hard to complete their programs of study and we wanted to make sure that no matter what, they were recognized, acknowledged and celebrated for this! Our Students have maintained motivation despite personal struggles and a tumultuous year for LARE and our graduates, who had to shift to online learning practically overnight as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in order to finish their licensing and certificate programs. Our students are proof that with the right supports and the right work ethic, you can accomplish anything, even during the most uncertain of times!
Our students earned certificates in a variety of our LARE Institute programs spanning from; HiSET, Electronics Assembly, Business Technology, Certified Nursing Assistant, and Medical Assisting. Of the 130 graduates this year, at least 90 have already been placed in jobs! But what makes the LARE Institute so unique & different is our signature WOW! Magic culture. Our Teachers approach each and every day with the same passion for excitement and FUN that guarantees that no lesson is boring. In fact, the result of such attention to detail is that each person we serve has a greater opportunity to fall in love with learning that sets them on the path to creating more meaningful lives. Our WOW! Magic leads us to put in that extra effort, to go the extra mile and to put those we serve first. It reminds us each and every day to Bring Out the Best in every person with whom we are working. And by doing so, we show each Student just how much Every Life Matters.
We are so PROUD of the LARE Institutes Graduating Class of 2020!
