Quakertown Community/Upper Bucks County Technical HS Grad “Welded to Success”

2021 graduate Abby Jacobes earned a Gold Medal in Pennsylvania’s SkillsUSA Welding Sculpture Competition this year – and she’s begun a fulltime job with Klover Contracting, Inc., after graduation. Abby was a Cooperative Education student at Klover.

“I am overjoyed,” she said of her career start. “I am so glad for the opportunity and for the experience.”

Anna Marie D’Allession of Klover said Abby “is doing a tremendous job in the shop, and her skill has already surpassed others who have been veteran welders.”

Coincidently this week, the Wolf Administration encouraged students to consider pursuing a career and technical education.

Abby’s advice to students is, “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. You’ve got to go above and beyond to make it. Set your mind to something, have an end goal in mind, put your heart into it and never give up.”

Congratulations, Abby! We are so proud!
