St. Lawrence College students captured gold, silver and bronze medals at the 25th Ontario Technological Skills Competition held in Kitchener Waterloo, May 5-7, 2014.

Esthetician students, Kaitlyn Hoiles from Kingston, and Erica Campbell from Arnprior won gold and silver medals respectively as they competed against students from across Ontario in the areas of facial, manicure with nail art, fantasy make-up and back treatment with hot stone massage. Kaitlyn will go on to compete in the national Skills Canada National Competition, June 4 to 7, 2014 in Toronto.

Taking home the bronze medal was Jon Bourgoin from Kingston, Culinary Management-Co-op Apprenticeship student. Jon faced stiff competition and placed third out of a field of 21 competitors. This is the first time a student from SLC has placed at the medal podium for the Culinary program.

“I'm so excited to have been a part of this experience and have the chance to continue on to the national level as a part of team Ontario,” said Kaitlyn. “I couldn’t have done it without the support I got from both my professors and students of the Esthetics program at SLC!”

“Our students continue to make us proud in all disciplines, from Business, Health Sciences, and Skilled Trades,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO, St. Lawrence College. “We know that these real world learning experiences will help them in their future careers.”
