Apprenticeships: High costs yield high value
By Caitlin Coakley CHARLOTTE — Local companies are risking a lot of time and money to give students a solid start on their careers. It’s a serious effort, which showed on the face of Edward Deans one evening this week, as he held a 4-inch-long metal piece up to the light. His brow furrowed as he examined the slot he had filed in the center. Unsatisfied, he put the piece back into the table-mounted clamp and resumed filing. “It’s a puzzle project,” said Karl Golinski, 21, the fourth-year apprentice overseeing the students’ work. “They have to file out slots to make the pieces fit together.” At the Ameritech Die and Mold shop, three students — Deans, 16, from North Iredell High School, Brandon Acebo, 16, from Mooresville High School, and JC Stutts, 18, from Mooresville High School — were trying out for the Apprenticeship 2000 program.
