Yoe students get new opportunity with local business
Cameron students will have a new opportunity to hone their welding skills and possibly work for a local business.
As part of the Career and Technical Education program at Cameron ISD, the school district and C.H. Yoe High School have entered into an internship agreement with Butler Weldment Corporation in Cameron where students in the Certified Welding Program at Yoe High School have an opportunity to apply for an internship through the manufacturing corporation.
CISD CTE Director Kenny Driska said students in the welding program will go on a tour of the facility at Butler Weldments, and then apply for and then go through an interview process with Butler Weldments staff before being selected for the program. This is a competitive program where only students who meet the qualifications of Butler Weldments will be admitted.
“Through the internship program students will have the opportunity to work off campus at Butler Weldments daily to improve their craft as welders, hopefully leading to gainful employment for those interns after graduation from high school,” Driska said.
Butler Weldments has been in business since 1977 and is a trusted partner in the manufacturing of fabricated and machined metal parts located in the industrial complex in Cameron.
“Cameron ISD is extremely grateful to Butler Weldments for providing this opportunity to extend student’s learning in their chosen career field,” Driska said.
