Tuesday, February 9 at Saline High School

In addition to Congressman Walberg from 7th Congressional District of Michigan, the event featured a panel of community leaders who talked about positive solutions for job creation and workforce development. Some of those present were Scot Graden (Superintendent at Saline Area Schools), Steve Jedele (Owner of Steve’s Custom Signs), Greg Cook (Toyota), Fred Piercy (President of R&B Plastics Machinery) & Tom Preston (President of Precision Devices Inc.)

After all, February is Career and Technical Education Month, so one of the key areas of discussion was ways to help the next generation successfully enter the workforce and put more Americans back to work with 21st century skills. Members of the community were also provided an opportunity to help deliver solutions to help grow a health economy.



Our Program Director and Principal, Jody Gielinski, Tries Her Hand At Welding!


It's a great day when the Director and Principal of SWWC wants to join in on the class in Welding and give it a try.  Mrs. Jody Gielinski came prepared, dressed in her custom welding jacket and the other necessary PPE (personal protective equipment) to learn to weld.  Student, Ian Schwenke, was on hand to give thorough instructions and tips for a good weld bead.   You rock, Mrs. Gielinski!!
