Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Marty Rikard

I graduated from LHS in 1992 where I also completed Small Engine Technology 1 & 2. My instructor thought I was good enough to take to Skills USA where I won first place in the state for Small Engine Technology. We traveled to nationals that summer and I finished 24th in the nation at the SkillsUSA national conference. I worked as a lawn mower mechanic for one year out of high school then found a job as a marine technician where I worked for eleven years. After long consideration I took CATE classes with the state, took ADEPT classes with the district and took graduate courses with Clemson to become a teacher in the same classroom that I was taught in as a teenager. This is my fourteenth year as a teacher and it's been great.
