As a teenager struggling to figure out what he wanted to do with his life, Jeramy Fyffe toured a vocational school.
He saw a kid hunched over a hunk of steel, sparks flying from the welder that he steadied with gloved hands. Fyffe watched the metal change shape, and the transformation fascinated him.
He went on to graduate from Tolles Career & Technical Center’s welding and fabrication program in 2008. For nearly three years now, he has worked at Autotool, a Plain City company that designs and builds robotics and machine systems for the automotive industry.
