This page highlights the Board's continuous involvement in matters of workforce development in Lake County.
Lake County Workforce Development Board Chair, Jennifer Harris (left), presents the Illinois Workforce Partnership (IWP) Individual Achievement Award to recipient, Jenine DeAcklen (right). Only one award winner is chosen in each of the 22 Local Workforce Areas in Illinois. The award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding workforce and employment-based achievements.
Jenine was a Workforce Development participant who successfully completed training in computer and information systems management through the Job Center of Lake County. Jenine applied her newly trained skills in a work-based training program at the Lake County Treasurer's Office. It was through her own hard work and ability to quickly learn the work and demonstrate her value that Jenine was then hired full-time as the Real Estate Tax Collector and Specialist at the Treasurer's Office.
