Logan High School
Submitted by: Dani Bell

Certified Welders are in high-demand in Southeastern Ohio and throughout the state and nation. Employment, with living wage salary, is nearly a 100% success rate. At the end of November, approximately 60 Logan High School Welding students, in Mr. Abram's classes, visited the Hocking College Welding Labs to learn more about the college's 16-Week Welding Certification Program, with Welding Program Director John McClung.

Logan-Hocking Schools and Hocking College have partnered for LHS students to begin the HC certification coursework, while enrolled in LHS welding classes. LHSD Director of Student Programs, Brice Frasure explained, “Currently we have secured bilateral articulation agreement between Hocking College and LHSD for students in LHS Welding Technology courses to receive articulated credit for the HC Introduction to Welding course, with the opportunity to also receive articulated credit for HC Stick Welding, upon completion of the onsite welding performance test.” This partnership provides students the opportunity to complete two, of the five, required welding HC courses at LHS. The courses consist mostly of 11th and 12th grade students, with a mix of a few determined 10th graders.
