I chose to attend All-State Career because it fit my schedule and night classes, I had heard a lot of good things about it.
I wanted to get into the welding aspect because sooner or later I want to move down south, get away from the winters and get a job in a shipyard.
My schedule was I worked six days a week, usually 10 hour days, and I came here at night for five hours, four nights a week. It was hard, it was hard. I learned to live without sleep for 11 months but it was well worth it.
It gave me a lot of pride. I’m 50 years old, I worked 6 days a week and I went to school and I did it.
