Student Highlight: Ashleigh Larocque
Grade 12 I.E. Weldon Secondary School student, Ashleigh Larocque, was registered as a welding apprentice at the Indenturing Ceremony. She said that her teachers, Mr. Yake and Mr. McVeety were really helpful in explaining how she could become involved in OYAP.
“I first became interested in welding by reading about an underwater welder in a Stephen King novel,” Ashleigh laughed. “After I finish my apprenticeship, I want to study to become a commercial diver so that I can weld underwater. My dad said to always shoot for the sky and that’s what I’m doing!”
