Welding Field Trip

Submitted by tyler.lewis on

Students from the MMHS advanced welding class were able to go on a field trip where they toured 4 union halls (sheet metal workers, pipefitters, ironworkers, and boilermakers) and Weber State University's welding engineering department. It was a long day of over 10 hours and 200 miles but the students enjoyed using the equipment at several of the union halls, learning about post-high school options, and meeting with multiple experts in the field of welding and other trades. Thank you to everyone who made this field trip possible!

Welding's Fix it Saturday

Submitted by tyler.lewis on
Maple Mountain High school Welding Class is hosting its annual Fix it Saturday MAY 11th! The welding fabrication team won their 7th consecutive State Championship for SkillsUSA. The money raised here will help the team get back to the national contest in Lousiville, KY in June.  On previous Fix It days we have repaired or rebuilt trailers, sporting equipment, yard tools, fire pits, gates, plus more. Anything that's metal we can try to help you avoid throwing it away. We have even built small projects that day.

SPANISH FORK — If there's one thing the boss doesn't tolerate, it's laziness.

Shop teacher Jared Massic tries to instill this in his students.

"Commitment, dedication, hard work," Massic said.

Now those lessons are being applied by his students who are finalists in a national competition.
