Colerain High School machining students were able to participate in a local job fair designed to help educate them about their career prospects after graduation.
Colerain holds machining classes attended by approximately 50 upper classmen and women, taught by Colerain instructor Dave Fox.
“During the election, I heard both candidates always talking about advance manufacturing and that’s what we do. It’s a highly precision type of cutting on metal, and we’re producing a lot of great kids here at Colerain High School,” the teacher told local affiliate Fox 19.
Last Friday, the students were able to meet local employers and learn about precision machining prospects in the Groesbeck, Ohio area. Fox explained that trained machinists can earn between $45,000-$50,000 in their first year on the job.
