Welding Students Earn Apprenticeship

June 16, 2020

Congratulations to Reese, Cole, Jacob, and Noah for being chosen for a four-year apprenticship with Vaughn Industries! These students have worked hard to learn what it takes to enter this field and their work has paid off. As our Welding Instructor, Mr. DeMent explains,

“Welding is a career path, but there are so many career paths within the welding umbrella,” DeMent said. “There isn’t a direct road that everybody takes to get to their destination, and what’s what I like about the welding industry. There are different welding processes, different metals that get welded, there is construction, manufacturing, custom fabrication, automation, and inspection, just to name a few. These students are exposed and knowledgeable about all these different pathways so when industry leaders come in and highlight the opportunities within their company, students really know and understand if that is the path they want to pursue.”
