Success, Teamwork, Attitude, Respect”
Henry Davison Youth Center

 The STAR Achiever Program exposes high school students to educational opportunities that are available in high school through  Kirkwood Community College.

Wade Pucket is a registered member of the Henry Davison Youth Center and a member of the STAR Program.  Next year, as a  Junior at Washington High School, Wade will be attending Kirkwood’s “Advanced Manufacturing and Welding” class at the Kirkwood Regional Center. Upon completion of this class, he will receive a machining and welding certificate that will offer  him immediate employment opportunities.

The STAR Program arranged for Wade to visit Master Tool & Mfg. in Hiawatha to expose him to the environment he will be entering upon receipt of his certification.  He received a very comprehensive tour of the machining and fabrication facility. A special thanks to Master Tool and Mfg. Co-Owner Clint Bitterman along with Rob Davis and Keith Musser for encouraging Wade and supporting his continued education at Kirkwood.
