The Co-op Tech program provides students, such as Joshua Cruz, with opportunities to explore their passions. In the following narrative, the WHSAD senior, shares his experience in the welding program.
I chose to go to Co-op because I wanted to do something different for my senior year. I was tired of seeing the same blue walls everyday. The class I’m taking at Co-op is the welding class. The thing I like the most about the class is that I get to work with my hands instead of sitting down and writing all day. Also I get to learn something new. I think my teacher is pretty cool because he helps you a lot if you try. I plan to do this as a career. I think Co-op does give job opportunities but you have be 18 or older, depending on the job you are applying for. I do recommend Coop to students if you like working with your hands or trying to learn something new.
