The graduates included: Theodore Letandre, Ashley Johnson, Kennedy Anderson, Justin Bone, Dwight Noctor and Blaine Thompson.

FNT2T’s Allen Sutherland offered opening and closing prayers, while Boh Kubrakovich offered greeting and words of congratulations. Also present were Scott Lynxleg, one of our External/Internal Circle Keepers, Keven Poirer, ACC’s Dean of Trades, as well as numerous family and guests. Miigwech to Charles Blackbird for organizing this special event.

The ABC program introduced students to construction tools, reading blueprints, build projects and practical skills as preparation for work in the construction industry. We wish them well as they move into the field of carpentry!
