Friends and Neighbors: EB shipbuilding course holds graduation
Twenty-six area high school students, including 11 from Stonington and North Stonington, were honored June 5 at the Westerly Education Center for completing courses in maritime pipefitting and sheet metal.
The program, a partnership with the Community College of Rhode Island and Electric Boat, offers courses for high school students from Stonington, North Stonington and several towns in Rhode Island. Students take the classes while enrolled in high school to set them up for employment and internships at EB or additional coursework at CCRI.
