We invite you to take a close look at the Power Academy program being offered at Tenoroc High School. This program is provided by the Polk County School Board and sponsored by Lakeland Electric.
Lakeland Electric anticipates many career opportunities becoming available for students graduating from high school during the next several years due to employee retirements.
This program will help students develop the necessary technical and people skills required for employment at Lakeland Electric or for any company in the world. In addition, this Academy will provide students with an excellent foundation to compete for a variety of careers in other trades and industries, such as construction and manufacturing.
This program will also be very beneficial for students planning to move on to a four-year college or a trade school by providing technical knowledge and dual college credit enrollment while still in high school.
We at Lakeland Electric are very proud of this program that is contributing to our City’s bright future. Since the beginning of the program, 114 students have graduated from the Academy. Eight of our students have gone on to be hired into full-time Lakeland Electric or COL Departments. As another stepping stone following the program, ten graduates from our two combined academies are currently employed in Lakeland Electric internship programs.
We know as a high school student, you have to make some very difficult decisions on which classes to take to help you get into the career of your choice. We feel the Lakeland Electric Power Academy will give you the information and background needed to continue in almost any career of interest to you. Graduate with options!
