The district also recognized Ian Hawbaker, center below, the first Fort Zumwalt student to complete the United States Department of Labor Youth Apprenticeship Program. Ian has completed coursework through Fort Zumwalt's Industrial Technology and Engineering curriculum as well as 2,000 hours of paid, on-the-job training to earn this nationally recognized certification. He works for Merric Millwork and Seating.
After the signing ceremony, more than 200 people on hand heard from industry partners and were able to have one-on-one conversations with them about the program. Teachers were also on hand for these students and their parents/guardians to answer questions about the curriculum and how to apply for the program.
