Another door to a successful future opened up for students at Bunker Hill High on Thursday with the official grand-opening of the school’s brand new welding lab.
The program is being done in partnership between Catawba County Schools and Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC).
“This is a story about partnership,” Bunker Hill High Principal Jeffrey Isenhour said during the ribbon cutting ceremony.

As the region’s largest not-for-profit community hospital, the Catawba Valley Medical Center has been a great work-based learning partner with Catawba County Schools for many years.

With this transformation, our teachers have answered the call by re-tooling classrooms and professionally committing to learning new concepts and curricula. CTE classrooms offer a learning experience with real-world connections. Great teachers are the bridge to these connections.
