SHS alumni Ian Kelly now works at Pratt & Whitney and spoke to seniors about his process getting started. He was recruited right out of high school and started on the floor at Pratt & Whitney three days after he graduated.
He started on the floor and was a machine operator, he then got involved in the apprentice program, which was a four-year program, and now he is a layout inspector and CMM programmer with Pratt & Whitney.
While in high school, Kelly won a silver medal in Technical Computer Applications at the 2015 SkillsUSA Conference in Bangor. Read more about it here.
