To the editor:

On behalf of Lake Placid High School, I would like to thank the community

partners who recently participated in the 2011 Career Immersion Day


Career Immersion Day is a program which encourages local community

professionals to host interested high school students for a half-day

orientation and investigation into diverse career fields. Now in its 14th

year, Career Immersion Day has proven to be an excellent opportunity for

students to obtain first-hand experiences of careers in the "real world."

This year, our program sent 26 sophomores out to 13 sites in the Tri-Lakes

area. Immersion sites are located throughout Lake Placid, Ray Brook and

Saranac Lake and partners this year included:

Ted Blazer and staff, the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA,

Lake Placid

Michael L. Bird, AIA and staff, Adirondack Design, Saranac Lake

Staff members Gary Ladisic, Cindy Baird, Mel Frazer, Ann Miller, and

Laura Coffin, Lake Placid Elementary School, Lake Placid

Dr. Sue Benway and staff, Elmbrook Veterinary Services, AuSable Forks

The entire staff of High Peaks Dental, Lake Placid

Annie Brucker and the Spa staff, Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, Lake


Sharon Van Auken and staff, High Peaks Resort, Lake Placid

Carol Joannette and staff, Lake Placid/Essex County Convention and

Visitors Bureau, Lake Placid

Michelle Clement and colleagues, WNBZ Radio Station, Saranac Lake

Dr. Shayn Armstrong and colleagues, Bionique Testing Laboratories,

Saranac Lake

Connecting students to local businesses here in the Tri-Lakes area

continues to be a tremendous teaching tool and a valued partnership

between the high school and our communities. Thank you again for this

opportunity and your continued support of our students.
