Georgia Trade School changed my life in many ways and really has made me, what I can only hope is a much better person. Instructor James Spinner stood by my side through my good welding days and my bad. From him and the other instructors I learned patience and humility, not only when welding but just in general. The school gave me all the tools to do whatever I put my mind to and they drove me every day to be better than the day before.

I ended up getting a job with a small company called Apex Welding right out of school and it’s been amazing since day one. From running pipe at CKS, a company that produces many of the plastic bottles we use every day, to a little bit of work for Lockheed Martin. Our next project we will be running all the welded pipe for Georgia Southern university’s new football field house.
