WASHINGTON (25News Now) - Seven students at Washington Community High School signed their letters of intent Thursday for jobs or apprenticeships that might soon lead to promising careers in the skilled trades.

Curriculum in the trades has been expanding at the high school for the past couple of years, and faculty members say they’re very proud of the students who are pursuing career and technical education.

“They are all going into a trade of some sort, so we wanted to honor that because there is definitely a need for that in our society, and we wanted to show there’s a group of guys who are not going into debt, and they are going to be doing very well financially right off the bat,” said Danny Thornton, a welding instructor at Washington High.

These are the students who signed letters of intent for jobs and apprenticeships:

Sam Barton - Automotive - Uftring/ASEP Program

Isaac Eyres - Welding - Morton Industries

Kyson Ford - Welding - Morton Industries

Easton Hunter - Production Mig Welding - Morton Industries

Tyler Robenstein - Diesel Powered Equipment & Technology - Martin Tractor/ICC

Nate West - Automotive - Mike Murphy Ford/Parkland

Noah Wiley- Diesel Powered Equipment & Technology - Martin Tractor/ICC

Washington High plans to start a construction trades program next year.
