Education WORKS Champions used re-training, education and lifelong learning to improve their lives.
The Champions faced different challenges, but stayed focused and reached their goals! They may have gone back to school after dropping out years earlier, re-trained after losing their job, or continued to focus on education and training as they worked.
Our Champions succeeded because of their own drive, and because of the programs and support available in the community. They are inspirations to others, examples of how education and lifelong learning can make a difference.
A Champion could also be someone who does not have recent experience with education, but who succeeded because of his or her past education, and talent: local business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators. Showcasing this talented workforce will help promote Grand Erie as a "centre of learning."
