Wells County Will Weld Well (And Adams Also)

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

The Wells County Economic Development Corporation and the Adams County Economic Development Corporation worked together along with the six high schools located in the counties, the Indiana Department of Education, Area 18 CTE and several local industries to make this program possible. As soon as next fall welding programs will be taught at Bluffton High School in Wells County and Bellmont High School in Adams County.

For right now, the program only includes high school-level education. Long term, these local partners intend to include adult education programs as well to create more opportunities for the workforce to learn skills, enter a solid career and provide local businesses with the workers they need to continue to prosper.
