Introducing Michael Beech

In conversation with members of the Class of 2015.

Michael Beech

BCSS Class of 2015 graduate Michael Beech was the first student to go through the exit interview process this spring. For good reason too, he finished high school one semester early and was keen to get into the job market before the rush later in the spring when college and secondary schools release their students for summer.

He was heading to Kelowna in early March with a well-written resume that highlighted his abilities.

His short-term goals are to get to Kelowna and to find a job. “It could be trades, it could be anything,” he told career counsellor Pam Storie during his exit interview. He plans to save money so he can go on to study at BCIT or Selkirk.

He is leaning toward pursuing a career in the engineering field, possibly electrical engineering.

When asked about hobbies, Michael said he enjoys creating things; but lately looking for a job has become a hobby.

Storie wished him well and offered the suggestion that he continue his studies through a night school course even while building his college grubstake.

Michael is a well-spoken young man who says his social confidence is something he picked up while at BCSS.

When asked how he’d matured while at BCSS, he said, “It pays out in the end if you pay attention to people other than yourself. It is better to be involved with the community and give back.”
