LAWTON, OK (RNN Texoma) - A group of Lawton Public School students are better prepared for the workforce thanks to the Skills for Life Foundation.
The foundation held a graduation ceremony Wednesday for students who have completed 10 workshops aimed at helping them find and keep a job.
The president of the foundation says the students learned things that this generation isn’t being taught like the generation before. “Our students learn how to smile, shake hands, dress appropriately, introduce themselves, give a 60 second pitch, design a super six targeted six second resume, nail an interview, build rapport and really become part of a team in the workforce here in the Lawton area," said Meegan Kriley-Mickay, President of the Skills For Life Foundation.
Kriley-Mickay says this is the third year that they partnered with LPS to offer the workshops.
Wednesday they graduated 73 kids.
Those students will now get to apply for internships with some of the program’s sponsors.
