For the next few weeks, we will be highlighting our students who are considered non-traditional. A 'non-traditionalCTE student is considered one who is pursuing a career or technical education program related to an occupation which employs less than 25% of their gender.

Olivia Creekmore is a junior here at Warsaw Community High School/Warsaw Area Career Center and is in our Welding Technology program with Mr. Morr. Previously she has taken Intro to Manufacturing & Intro to Construction here in the WACC. Olivia decided to take these classes because she has always enjoyed building things & learning how they are made. Olivia also says that when she was younger, she would always help her dad fixing things in the garage & enjoyed it. Olivia is proud to have already obtained her MIG Welding Certification & plans to attend a trade school upon high school graduation to continue her welding education. Congrats, Olivia! We are proud of you & appreciate you allowing us to feature you on the blog today!



Adrian Payne, a senior here at WCHS/WACC, is doing really well at his job at Lippert Components in Goshen. He was recently promoted to shift leader and earned a few awesome incentives for the outstanding work he's done lately. The following article was shared with us by his employer. Congratulations Adrian! We are so proud of you!!

Mr. Paseka's Welding Technology II students competed at the 39th AWS Midwest Welding competition last Thursday & Friday in Indianapolis, hosted by J.Everett Light Career Center. This was the first year the Warsaw Area Career Center competed in this competition and as a school, Warsaw placed 15th out of 26 teams. Students in attendance were: Taylor Cassel, Kody Ogan, Seth Conley, Brandon McCord, & Kole Komedeur. Individually, Taylor placed 5th & Kody placed 6th overall. Congratulations & great job guys!


Taylor Cassel, advanced welding student, carefully monitors progress on the largest cutting project so far for WACC welding. Taylor designed and programmed our CNC Plasma cutter to make a geodesic dome fire pit. The total inches of travel and cut is 5,000 and will take about 3 hours of cut time to complete. The final picture shows the progress of the cuts thus far on the computer. Can't wait to see the finished product!
