The L’Anse Area School’s (LAS) Industrial Education (IE) building has had many new  equipment upgrades to help introduce students into several common local trades. This past summer, LAS hired on new IE Instructor James Oger to teach Machine Woods, Work Based Learning, Metal Fabrications and a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Foudations class. With over 20 years in the industry, Oger brings with him previous experience teaching  welding for the Gogebic – Ontonagon Intermediate School District (GOISD) and also for Southern Technical College in Orlando, FL.
