KCLC grads ready for the next step

Students, family and friends gathered to support KCLC grads Wednesday afternoon.



Students, family, friends, and local supporters of Kootenay Columbia Learning Centre (KCLC) gathered in the School District 20 (SD 20) facility in East Trail to congratulate 11 students as they donned black gowns and followed the procession to celebrate their high school graduation ceremony Wednesday afternoon.

Graduates, Rayann Boilard, Josh Burkart, Nicole Foyle, Wayne Haines, Kyle MacKay, Alex Stansfield, Dallas Tymkiw, Kristopher Walsh, Ashley Watson, Skye Weiss, and class valedictorian, Shane Flynn, were piped into the school’s gym to be acknowledged for their efforts in completing their studies with SD 20’s Alternative Education Program.

The 11 Trail campus students join 22 others who have completed their studies through online courses and Continuing Education.

The KCLC students, in addition to their academic programs, have the opportunity to gain invaluable experience through programs focusing on career and pre-employment skills, physical education, Adventure Based Learning through the Take a Hike program, nutritional programs, community volunteer activities, and social awareness and personal development through numerous guest presentations, and educational and active field trips.
