MCHS Valmont Pre-Apprectices recognized at luncheon Tuesday

Students participating in the pre-apprenticeship welding program at Marion County High School were recognized for their achievements in the program at a special luncheon on Tuesday.

Those in the program have practiced the welding trade through a pre-apprentice program in conjunction with the district and school’s CTE (Career Tech Education) program and local company, Valmont Industries.

All of these students are also now certified welders.
