Student Success Story
Submitted By: Butte County ROP
Employer Funds Welding Student's Education
Jake was attending a private school and achieving average grades, but he had not decided what he wanted to do after high school.
In an ROP welding class at a local public high school, Jake found his niche. He enjoyed the welding class so much that he applied for an accelerated college welding course.
Jake was accepted to the welding program and went right to work for Siemens, a global company with great pay and benefits. Jake says, "It is the best of both worlds, I wanted to finish college, but now I work for a company that will pay for me to finish school!"
