LACONIA — On May 30, the J. Oliva Huot Career and Technical Center recognized the achievements of the 2019 graduating class. A crowd of family, friends and school officials gathered to support the center’s 122 students who completed the two-year career and technical education program. Center Director David Warrender recognized the students who earned professional certifications throughout the year ranging from OSHA-10 and technical certifications such as Solidworks and ASE automotive, to students completing extended clinical experiences to become licensed as nursing assistants. Students also earned college credit at the Huot Center, with over 300 college credits earned during the 2018-2019 school year. Altogether, students were awarded approximately $10,000 in scholarships and awards at the celebration.

At the close of the ceremony, students were called to the stage to receive certificates of completion documenting successful mastery of their program. The Huot Center serves students from six local high schools.
