There is a new, exciting opportunity for students at Jefferson Davis County Middle School. The Dennis W. Fortenberry Career Center is offering a welding class specifically designed for middle school students to introduce them to the possibilities and benefits of acquiring this valuable skill.

Welding is a practical and in-demand skill that can open a world of opportunities for students in various industries such as construction, manufacturing, automotive, shipbuilding and more.

By providing middle school students with the opportunity to learn the basics of welding in a safe and supervised environment, we aim to spark their interest and passion for this trade.

The welding class will be June 7 and 8 from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and will be free of charge to all participants. The class will be taught by experienced and certified instructors who will guide the students through hands-on projects and teach then the fundamental techniques of welding. The class will not only focus on technical skills but also emphasize the importance of safety, precision and creativity in welding.

All activities will be hosted at the Career Center in Carson. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided, and parents are asked to drop off and pick up their child.

“We believe that introducing students to welding at a young age can help them explore interests, develop valuable skills, and consider potential career paths in the future,” said Director Shelia Jefferson. “We are committed to providing a supportive and engaging learning environment that will inspire and empower students to pursue their passions.”
