Kannapolis City Schools and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College are at the end of the successful second semester of a welding program.

Housed in a workshop at the Carver Building at A.L. Brown High School, students have a hands-on opportunity to learn a technical skill and graduate with a certification and enter the work-force or continue on to secondary education.

The lesson plans combine classroom time in a dedicated space in the workshop and projects that asses skills used in the welding trade. This allows students to use their hands and learn a trade—something a little different than the typical classroom work.

Welding is in high-demand for our area because of the growth in home building and because of the plethora of race shops.

The welding program is a part of the Career and College Promise program, a partnership initiative between NC community colleges and local high schools to provide students opportunities to earn college credit and work-place experience.
