Sonny Kirkpatrick, class instructor, said the program graduates were extended an “invite to go to train.

“The training the students have received on campus has prepared them for the opportunity for the manufacturing intern job training,” Kirkpatrick said, adding that it is a great benefit to graduating high school students to begin their careers right out of high school with the possibility of having a job.

The local area offers a wide range of manufacturing industries with job opportunities for trained individuals.

Kirkpatrick expressed appreciation to Lockheed Martin for the opportunities offered to CHHS students through the manufacturing technologies class.
