One high schooler said that PIA was his top choice after graduation.
“I’m a welder and I was told there’s a lot of money to be made in the welding field. I’ve got certification in welding and, who knows, I could be welding on airplanes some day,” said Drew Hoover of Marlington High School.
Attendees also toured the campus, learned about the 16-month program and viewed interactive demonstrations.
