Counselors Participate in Virtual Tour for Marine Industry

School and district administrators, counselors, educators, and graduation coaches from St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) participated in a virtual tour focused on the local marine industry.  Representatives from Maverick Boat Group, Freedom Boat Club, Shearwater Marine, and Derecktor Shipyard centered their discussion on employment opportunities and talent recruitment for their respective company.  This information will be shared with SLPS graduating seniors interested in this career pathway.  This ties directly to the Outboard Marine Service Technology program at St. Lucie West Centennial High School led by CTE Educator, Chadd Fleming.  This engaging event was made possible through the collaboration between St. Lucie Public Schools, SLPS’s Career and Technical Education Department, and the Economic Development Council (EDC) of St. Lucie County.
