School districts partner with CVTC in Welding Academy

Cornell High School senior Garret Kralewski fired up an oxyacetylene torch and prepared to do some more cutting on a piece of metal when his instructor looked at the flame and gave him an important tip. “A little more oxygen, Garret,” said Chrystal Reidt, a Chippewa Valley Technical College Welding instructor.


Kralewski is one of a dozen students from Cornell, Cadott, Stanley-Boyd and Gilman high schools picking up basic instruction and finer points of welding during a Welding Academy held at Cadott High School through a cooperative agreement between CVTC and the partner school districts. But welding knowledge is not all the students are picking up.
