VoTech Project at Golightly Career and Technical Center
We have been involved with Golightly Career and Technical Center, at 900 Dickerson Avenue in Detroit, for three years, setting up and maintaining the very first student chapter located within the actual city limits. The chapter has helped many young people find their way into a career in the welding field, and we are very proud of this historic achievement. We will continue to work on prepping the students for the Skills USA competition and the AWS High School Welding Competition.
Golightly Project History
Along with the instructor, Juan Whiting, we have headed the Weld Advisory Committee at Golightly for the past three years. This has been a great opportunity to work with the students and support their welding program. We have assisted them in extending their education and finding AWS scholarships, and we have attended career nights and parent's nights to talk about the many great opportunities in the welding industry.
