The Art of Welding

Megan Payne

As part of the YEC grant, the students at R. G. Drage Career Technical Center have benefited from new technology in both the academic and career technical lab areas. Providing new and innovative technology allows students to see beyond traditional coursework and pathways. The metal fabrication students are experiencing this as they become creative artists in a manufacturing program that is often times viewed as unimaginative.

Under the leadership of Scott Burdge, R. G. Drage’s veteran metal fabrication instructor, the students are not only gaining experience in providing customer service for business and industry, but are finding that through the “art of welding”, they are making an impact on our community. The new technology in metal fabrication is changing the face of the industry.
