Southington High School
Major emphasis was on Mechanical Drafting (3 years) and Vocational Agriculture (3 years). Other education was on job training including 10+ years welding and welding fabrication. Raising a family did not allow for attending additional formal schooling. Resulted in gaining much more practical training and experience in the real world of manufacturing and engineering.
