Welding Pathway meeting after school; openings still available in the program


Welding Pathway meets on Wednesday in the Metal Shop to work on exciting projects like this one.

If you are looking for a chance to work with your hands, build cool stuff, and develop essential career skills, the Welding Pathway may be what you are looking for here at Colton High. The Welding Pathway meets Wednesdays from 2:00-3:00 in the Metal shop.

The Welding Pathway gives students an opportunity to work on things like cars, or constructing fun statues. In addition, the pathway has many benefits that will help their students in the long run, like when they get a job or when they go off to college. 

“We also try to teach [our students] what are called soft skills,” said Andrew Vidal, the Welding Pathway adviser. “Those are skills that are more about being a good person, showing up to work on time, having a strong work ethic, working well as a team, and doing the job well.” 

If you think this Pathway might be for you, consider joining. There are still spots available in the program. Email Mr. Vidal, visit him in room 559, or see your guidance counselor.
