Sequim High School Welding Class

Sequim High School

Welding teacher Bill Seabolt shared an account of local businesses working with the school district. Junior Cameron Hatt made a headache rack for his truck, and it turned out very professional. Seabolt went to the Dog House Powder Coat, and arranged with owners Steve and Lori Harwood to allow Cameron to use their sandblast room and do his own sandblasting and powder coat his project himself. Says Seabolt, “This type of relationship with local businesses allows our students an opportunity to explore new and different job fields that are not offered by the school district. Without this type of arrangement students would not get to work in an industry-type atmosphere and get to handle and work with equipment otherwise not available to them.”

“This is one benefit of having a dedicated Advanced Welding program and Career Technology Education (CTE) Program,” continued Seabolt.  “Over my years here (at Sequim High School), I have maintained a great working relationship with many of the local businesses. This year we are partner shipping with Armstrong Marine to have a successful aluminum welding program at the high school, and all to the benefit of our students. I take my hat off to the local businesses like Dog House Powder Coating and Armstrong Marine that support our future workforce and citizens of our community.”
