"Signing Day" Celebrates Students' Commitment to Future Careers

"Signing Day" Celebrates Students' Commitment to Future Careers

Lincoln Tech campuses honor students pursuing hands-on career training.

PR Newswire

WEST ORANGE, N.J., Feb. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Educational Services Corporation (NASDAQ: LINC), a national leader in specialized automotive and skilled trades career training, held a Letter of Intent Signing Day on Thursday, February 20th, at their campuses across the country.  Current high school seniors planning to attend Lincoln Tech for the 2020-2021 academic year were honored at ceremonies reminiscent of athletic signing days as they look ahead to future professional success.

Hundreds of high school seniors attended Lincoln Tech's Letter of Intent Signing Day ceremonies at the school's campuses across the country. The students were honored as they pledged their commitment to attend Lincoln Tech upon graduating from high school in the spring.

Hundreds of students were joined by friends and family as they signed letters of commitment at campuses in Denver, CO; East Windsor and Shelton, CT; Grand Prairie, TX; Indianapolis, IN; and Melrose Park, IL.  The Denver event was sponsored by The National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3).

"Lincoln Tech is honored to be the school of choice for so many talented, hands-on learners planning to further their education in the academic year ahead," says Lincoln Tech President and CEO Scott Shaw.  "We want to recognize these students and their pursuit of technical education geared towards in-demand careers."

Industry representatives and hiring managers also attended the events and spoke with students about the value of a technical education.  Those same representatives may be meeting these students again as they approach graduation in a year or two when the employers are looking for new members to join their teams.  The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics projects millions of hands-on job openings by 2026, and employers are acutely aware that today's workforce doesn't include enough people with the skills required to do those jobs which has led to a skills gap crisis in our country. For high school students nearing graduation, this skills gap spells outstanding career opportunities.

"We recognize that 4-year college degree programs aren't for everyone," Shaw adds.  "The students who have committed today are positioning themselves well for more immediate career success because the majority of our programs can be completed in two years or less.  That means a faster route into the workforce, and to a paycheck.  We're excited to welcome them to the Lincoln Tech family."
