Part of the LATTC Strategic Plan calls for effective communication in support of student success. The Public Relations department has studied that recommendation and responded with a plan to use inspiration and engagement to encourage persistence among Trade Tech students. The strategy includes the use of video stories to showcase various forms of student success. It is called LATTC Story Corps, and we have created the first chapter, a story centering on an older student who secured both his GED and his love of education here at Trade Tech. Luis Reyes hopes he can become an example to his children and to others here on campus. Eventually we will place LATTC Story Corps chapters in a special location on our website, so they can be easily accessed. For now, we will place them in the news posts.
