Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) offers evening welding classes at the Lake Country Advanced Knowledge Center. Two students are employed at American Buildings Co. in LaCrosse and are continuing their skills training to be prepared for opportunities.

“I really love each of the programs in my division because they lead to good jobs,” Dr. Chad Patton, dean of Career and Occupational Technology, said. “I would strongly encourage anyone who likes a challenge and who has a good work ethic to spend a few nights a week learning a professional skill like welding. SVCC has many success stories and we are proud of each and every one of them.”
