AWS Awards Grant to Welding Classes

On Friday 4/27/18 John Willard of the American Welding Society (AWS) 13th District Director, presented a plaque to Mrs. Jodi Lancaster, the Welding Technology instructor at the Livingston Area Career Center in Pontiac, IL for winning a grant from the AWS.

The Welding Technology classes were awarded a grant of $22, 180.50. Part of this money was used to purchase two Lincoln Powerwave, 3 in 1 machines. They were also able to purchase two Square Wave GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) machines.  These machines will provide the capacity for working with both aluminum and stainless steel which has been an issue up to this point.
