Amherstburg native returns to encourage students to consider Coast Guard



 

Local high school students found out more about joining the Canadian Coast Guard and building a career there thanks to an Amherstburg native returning to the area.


Markie Simon was at St. Thomas of Villanova Secondary School and North Star High School last week giving presentations to classes and setting up shop in the cafeteria to meet with students.


“I’m here to inform students about the opportunities in the Canadian Coast Guard,” she said.


Free schooling is a possibility and career options include ship’s cook, deck hand, engineering officer, navigation officer, engine room assistant, steward, marine communications and traffic services officer and more.


Simon has been in the Canadian Coast Guard for 17 years and is the joint rescue co-ordinator in Trenton. Her job has included travel around Canada, noting “every day is different.”


Originally from Amherstburg, Simon said she was happy to be home for a few days and does plan to return to the area.
