Greetings in the name of the Lord!

Here we are again starting another school year. Seems like we just finished and the summer has gone so fast!
God has blessed us greatly this year! He has doubled our enrollment to over thirty students! Hallelujah! We had to add an additional teacher.

We are finding more young people interested in Vo-Tech. My wife and I are both proud graduates of the Oley Vo-Tech. Of course, we graduated when there were still square wheels back in 1972 and 1973. We both used our training for part of our adult careers. More and more career options are becoming available in tradesmen careers. Too many college degree holders are finding they cannot find work in the fields. Many times it’s because of not researching job availability in a chosen field of study.

There is nothing wrong with blue collar work. My entire family were union workers. I was the first in my family to graduate from college at the ripe old age of 41. I was fortunate that the Veterans Administration paid entirely for my college degree.

But this is definitely another alternative to post secondary education. My grandson, Brandon, did very well in school. He opted for the military rather than college. He has graduated Marine boot camp, will finish his basic infantry training, then he will be moving to Pensacola Naval Air Station for aircraft repair school for up to a year.

Please feel free to discuss different opportunities for your students education.

In His Name!

Mr Bliesath
