On March 27, 2015 the American Welding Society (AWS) held its awards ceremony at Lincoln Electric in Cleveland, Ohio.  All three of the Welding Technology students from the Venango Technology Center were in attendance.  The group was greeted by members from the AWS and Lincoln Electric, given a tour of the facility, lunch and then the awards ceremony.  Jacob Gomola was awarded an Xray Certification for
    3/8" plate for all positions.  In the welding community this is a very prestigious award.   
    These three Seniors competed in the 34th Annual American Welding Society (AWS) Annual Weld-off at Pittsburgh Technical Institute (PTI) on December 5, 2014.  Their plates have been sent away for X-ray inspection and the results will be know in late February or early March. All three spent a lot of time preparing for this event.  Good luck to all !!
