Class of 2022: Emmaus senior wins Career Academy award

Peter Keller examines his award during LCTI’s Senior Recognition Night at PPL Center in Allentown.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. | Lehigh Career & Technical Institute’s Career Academy Program, or CAP, is designed with the goal of helping students overcome challenges and meet their full potential. The seniors who embrace this goal leave LCTI primed for success in the next stage of their lives.

One of this year’s two Outstanding CAP Senior Award winners is Peter Keller, an Emmaus High School student in LCTI’s Masonry program. Director of Student Services Sean Will honored Peter on Tuesday (May 31, 2022) at PPL Center during the school’s Class of 2022 Senior Recognition Night. The prestigious, schoolwide award is one of seven presented at the ceremony.

Peter’s Masonry teacher, Garrett Tweed, describes the  Emmaus resident as a natural leader and a stickler for quality.

“I wish I had 30 more like him,” he said, noting that Peter always strives for technical excellence and inspires his peers to do the same.

The 19-year-old is a repeat student of the month and serves as an LCTI student ambassador for Masonry. He’s also the program’s Outstanding Career & Technical Education Senior Award winner. 

The Lehigh Career & Technical Institute’s Career Academy Program Senior Award is presented annually to two, full-day seniors who excel technically and academically while demonstrating a sense of community, fostering collaboration and practicing creativity both within and outside of the Career Academy Program.

Peter plans to put his masonry skills to work in the construction industry immediately after graduation. With a long-term goal of starting his own business, he is focused right now on getting as much on-the-job experience as possible.
