Daniela Parra is a junior here at WCHS/WACC and is in our Welding Technology program with Mr. Morr. In addition to currently taking Welding Technology I, Daniela has taken Introduction to Construction, Introduction to Manufacturing, Interactive Media Photoshop, Child Development, Interpersonal Relationships, & Preparing for College and Careers here in the WACC. She plans to take Welding Technology II & CNC next year, as well as be an assistant for Mr. Morr. In her spare time, Daniela works at Rozella Golf Course. She says that her welding education has already helped in her job there. After graduation next year, Daniela plans to go to a technical school to expand her welding skills but hasn't yet decided what she wants to do after that & is open to all opportunities that will come. 

In Daniela's own words about why she decided to take Welding: I like to learn about new things. I prefer hands-on classes, as well, so that played a big factor into why I chose to take welding. I have learned a lot so far that can help with jobs in the future. It's also really nice to see how far I've come with welding. At first, I didn't know much about any of that & now I have become a pretty good welder. Hard work pays off in the end. 

Congrats Daniela! We are proud of you & appreciate you allowing us to feature you on the blog!

Warsaw Area Career Center welding students teamed up with the Cardinal Center and the Redbird Art Studio to build giant size flowers for an art competition. They are also putting our WACC welding sign up with them. The flowers will start out at the library in Nappanee and hopefully come here at some point. Great job everyone! The flowers look awesome!!




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!
