Newark Advocate
There's something funky about this year's crop of welding students at the Career and Technology Centers of Licking County, Ohio — it's full of girls. There's usually one, sometimes two females in the traditionally male classes, but this year, there are five female welding students at C-TEC: Senior Samantha Heistand and juniors Cheyenne Hillyer, Caitlyn Mahan, Savanna Hunt and Abigail Hayes.

Good jobs, no diploma required; opportunity knocks in Houston
KHOU-TV
Inside a noisy manufacturing shop in Spring, Texas, Omar Gonzalez works as a machinist. Welding torches spew sparks around the open air facility near Hooks Airport, where Texas Advanced Manufacturing Solutions makes everything from oil rig parts to a staircase for a church. Gonzales makes enough money to support a family with three children, an impressive feat for an immigrant from Mexico who moved to Houston with the equivalent of a junior high school education.

Art of the arc at a Texas high school
The Port Arthur News
Dashia Domingue grinds the end of a metal rod before handing it to Devan Segura to join into the dryer system at Delta Industrial Service in Port Neches, Texas. Segura, a rookie foreman, silently drops his welding helmet over his face and sets to work. The lens protecting his eyes reflects electric blue light as bright orange sparks shower his boots. The pair — part of a close-knit team of 14 seniors from the Port Neches-Groves High School welding program — have been at this for a month already and have weeks to go. Their goal is to add more than 1,000 heating rods to the existing structure in order to "double Delta’s drying capacity."

SUNY Delhi female welders wield gender equity's torch
The Daily Star
While the young women in the State University of New York Delhi’s Welding Technology program learn to fuse chunks of metal, they’re simultaneously helping sever preconceived gender notions surrounding the industry, several female welding students said recently. Kaitlin Haynes, of Bloomville, is a freshman welding major at the school who is quickly falling in love with the craft. But it hasn’t been without pitfalls of prejudice. "I did have someone outside of the college make a comment," Haynes said. "I told him I was going to be majoring in welding and he said ‘Girls can’t weld.’ I looked at him and said, ‘Actually, it’s not just a man’s job.'"

At 91, Donora, Pennsylvania, native Mary Torres is still a riveting Rosie
TribLIVE
Mary (Schevchik) Torres was a shy, bright-eyed 18-year-old when she ran away from home to help her country win the war. It was June 1942 and Torres had just graduated from Donora High School. She saved up all of her money from her job at J.C. Penney to buy a one-way ticket to the West Coast. Torres left a note for her parents, Michael and Julia Schevchik, while they were at church one Sunday, and took off with just a small suitcase and her dreams in tow. She didn't know it then, but Torres would become one of the original "Rosie the Riveter" women who stepped up to work on assembly lines around the country after the men went overseas to fight in World War II.
