Logan Lanphier of Chelsea is a senior from Erskine Academy, enrolled in the Plumbing and Heating program for the second year.

Lanphier has liked the program because he feels that his instructor makes the class fun, and he has learned a lot. The knowledge he has gained in the program has helped him in his job with Hatch Well Drillers, according to a  news release from the center.

His instructor, Nick Smith, called Lanphier “a student that puts his head down and gets right to work. He is a quiet leader and is the type of student that lets his actions do the talking.”

His plan after he graduates is to continue to work for Hatch Well Drillers.

Ayden Martin of Richmond is a senior from Richmond High School enrolled for the second year in the Building Construction program.
