Lincoln Electric has donated more than $10,000 worth of equipment for use in Chipola College’s new welding program. The state-of-the-art lab features more than 25 of Lincoln’s newest welding machines. Pictured from left are: Lincoln Sales Representative Chris Stiver; Byron Ward, Chipola welding career coach; and Chipola welding instructor Patrick Kennedy.

Lincoln is one of the old line manufacturers of welding equipment in the United States, and is respected for the quality and longevity of its machines.

In connection with this program, Chipola College also donated five welding machines to Liberty County High School (LCHS). LCHS has numerous students enrolled in a welding program but are awaiting federal grant funds to purchase equipment. The Chipola donation includes one multi-process machine, two MIG machines and two stick welding machines.

LCHS principal Aaron Day, says, “We are so thankful to Chipola for helping our students. We will put this equipment to use immediately.”

Byron Ward, Welding Career Coach at Chipola, says, “We are glad to help Liberty County with their program. We welcome all of their students to enroll at Chipola when they graduate.” LCHS officials are planning a field trip for the high school students to visit Chipola’s state-of-the-art welding lab.
