Knox School Board Spotlights Welding Program’s Success

Superintendent A.J. Gappa

During their meeting this week, the Knox Community School Board spotlighted the welding program. The newly-designed program is being taught in the Knox Middle School.

Superintendent A.J. Gappa said Jerry Gurrado from the SCILL Center gave a report on the program which is getting off to a good start.

“It’s at capacity and there are students on the waiting list,” said Gappa. “We would hope that next year we could have to classes similar to the Auto Tech program with a morning class and an afternoon class. I talked about how the students are enjoying the class. When break time comes, the students don’t take their breaks–they work right through because they want to do as much as possible.”

The board hopes the program continues to be a success.
