Introducing Tyler Woykin

In conversation with members of the Class of 2015.

Tyler Woykin

Tyler Woykin is a confident young man who appears fully ready to take his place in the outside world after secondary school.

He took advantage of the Pathfinder Program, a partnership between Selkirk College and the school district that offers occupational courses leading to various certifications and tickets at a reduced cost to the student.

Some examples of tickets he has earned are bobcat operator, wheel loader operator, first aid attendant – Occupational First Aid Level 1, transportation endorsement, fall protection and H2S Alive.

He is also a skilled mechanic and holds a valid driver’s license.

He has worked on farms and is used to taking on heavy loads. His brag sheet says he can handle money, can work either alone or as a member of a team and is used to completing work in a set time frame.

He coached little league baseball one spring when his brother wanted to play and the team didn’t have a coach.

Tyler’s hobbies and interests include automobiles, motorcycles, camping and fishing.

He’s worked at Miller Springs and Phoenix Ski Hill.

His short-term goal is simple: “To find full-time employment in a friendly environment doing something I love.”

In 10 years he’d like to see himself working in a full-time position with some job security, “making a decent wage so I am not living paycheque to paycheque.”

“I prefer to do things outdoors,” Tyler explained. His dad taught him auto mechanics and he now does all of his own auto mechanics at home.

He said BCSS is a great school and is especially appreciative of the way teachers stay after school to help students one-on- one. He does suggest more hands on work, less written work in the mechanics course.

Tyler completed his grad requirements early and is now available for work.
