Congratulations to Triton High School’s inaugural LEEPS (Lincoln Electric Partner School) class for achieving a 100% pass rate!

All six class members received a nationally recognized credential, certified in Lincoln Electric Advanced Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW).

These students were the first to participate in the highly technical and academically rigorous program. Triton is the ONLY high school in these United States that can offer certificates in Advanced Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG) specifically for the Work Truck Industry issued by the Lincoln School of Welding.

Special thanks to Mr. Andy Cole, the fantastic educator and leader who oversees the program. He is the first high school teacher in the US to complete the course, and currently the only one certified.

These series of firsts were made possible through the partnerships with

The Godwin Group
Arc3 Gases
NC3 - National Coalition of Certification Centers
NTEA - The Association for the Work Truck Industry

We are grateful for our HCS Career and Technical Education Team and all the wonderful opportunities they provide for our Harnett County Schools students!
