Student Success Story
Submitted By: Riverside County Office of Education CTE
Brian, a high school student, was having a hard time in school. He wasn’t doing well in his academic classes. He was referred to the Riverside School of Career Education to help him explore career paths and find an area of work that interested him.
He began by taking classes in the welding program, and the ‘hands-on’ environment was a great fit for him. Brian continued the program after graduating high school, and did very well in his classes.
Brian was hired as a welder and has now been with his current employer for over five years. He is married with a child, and owns a home. Brian has encouraged others to take welding, saying, “These classes give students a chance for success.” He is grateful for the opportunity the SCE program gave him.
