Presentation Description

I created this slideshow for the GPRC Fairview Campus Transitional Vocational Program. The slideshow was used for the Graduation Dinner at the DMI on Saturday March 9th, 2013. The presentation introduces the students (where they are from, their hobbies and what they like about college) the instructors (same intro as the students) a quick over view of the Edmonton Career fair. It then continues to cover work placements, VS 105, 205 (Independent Living Skills Practicum) and many other events that took place over the year.

“...treasure what it means to do a day's work. It's our one and only chance to do something productive today, and it's certainly not available to someone merely because he is the high bidder. A day's work is your chance to do art, to create a gift, to do something that matters. As your work gets better and your art becomes more important, competition for your gifts will increase and you'll discover that you can be choosier about whom you give them to.” ― Seth Godin
