I am encouraged when I read about influential people in the educational field who speak out in defense of the trades. In this case, I’m talking about Cheri Jimeno, president of New Mexico State University-Alamogordo. She recently wrote a very interesting column for Alamogordo Daily News. The headline was “Voc ed not just for ‘bad’ kids.”
Last year The NEWS ran a series of articles on the “Young Guns of HVAC.” It was about young business owners who were making an impact on the trade. This time we are talking with the “old guns” - service techs that have made an impact on the trade long before any of the young guns were born.
I am paraphrasing this headline to make it fit on the page. The sign that is posted in a cheese steak shop in Philadelphia (gee, go figure) actually reads “This is America: When ordering please speak English.”
