Bracebridge, ON - Three students from Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes Secondary School have been signed as Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) apprentices.

Taylor McCoy signed as a registered OYAP apprentice with Chuck McNair Electric Ltd. in Bracebridge on December 5, 2016. Taylor follows a long list of apprentices who have signed on with McNair Electric. McNair provides a unique opportunity in the community in that he is enthusiastic about mentoring students straight out of high school. His goal is to see them successfully enter the electrical field and to be an important part of his growing team.

Corey Eyre has become a registered OYAP apprentice in the field of Automotive Service Technician. Pictured above are Corey's father, his sponsor and his uncle. Corey was born into a family who has been fixing automobiles for many years. He demonstrates that same aptitude that his father and uncle show, which has allowed him to learn and progress quickly. As he signs on to the apprenticeship program, he is beginning what will, no doubt, be a long and successful career in the automotive industry.

Thanks to Reville Auto, who has two apprentices from Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes SS - John Taylor & Joel Jeffries.

Jonathan Taylor is a student who has one of the best resumes a high school student could have. He has worked in many fields, and has an extensive number of certifications. However, when he decided to try his hand working with cars, he knew he had found his career.

Part of the credit for this success story goes to Steve Reville, a long time supporter of the Co-op program. He is someone who enjoys taking kids under his wing and providing a supportive environment that can give many different types of students exactly what they need to be successful.
