CHS Welding Class Spotlight

January 25, 2016 | Anthony Everhart

Crestview High School has many electives to choose from, whether it is writing articles in the school newspaper class, or working with metal in welding. There are so many fun and exciting electives to take. One of those electives is Crestview High School’s welding class.

The welding instructor is William Godwin. I, myself, am a part of Mr. Godwin’s 1st period class. I believe that he is a great teacher. He finds new ways to try and make everything understandable for the students. Although he has a few rules such as: no horseplay in the shop, no sleeping, no food or drinks, and no jewelry while in the shop, he also has fun with his job and makes the class fun for everyone.

One of his students said “I really want to become a welder. That is why I chose this class. I will try to reach my goal by taking this class.” This is just one of the many students that want to take this class to become a welder. Another student said “I don’t plan on being a welder. I like the class though.” Any student can take this class even if they do not want to become a welder. Throughout the year students do projects, group work, and even get an official National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) certified ID.

If you are looking for a fun class and you want something that is interesting, pick Mr. Godwin’s welding class. You will have a great time in it, especially, if you follow his rules. Registration for next year starts soon! Keep welding in mind for one of your electives.
