SkillsUSA Salem member Jacob Attarian created a SkillsUSA informational pamphlet explaining what a CTSO-Career & Technical Student Organization is and why it is important to join SkillsUSA at Salem High School. Jacob also included the dates and times for SkillsUSA meetings, as well as a directory of Salem Officers and Advisors. Jacob, along with fellow committee members Joshua Attarian, Chris Nikitas, Anthony Morganelli, and Mrs. Terry Berube-Advisor, made announcements in the cafeteria and distributed the pamphlets to the students at all four lunches on Wednesday, February 10, 2016.

Students learn about modern manufacturing in Salem

That was just one of the messages Salem High School students heard as they toured Data Electronic Devices on Monday morning as part of Manufacturing Week.
Data Electronic Devices president Victor Giglio reiterated Metzemaekers’ message, noting that his company has employees whose educational experience ranges from GEDs to multiple master’s degrees.
With the technology revolution of the past several decades, Giglio said that manufacturing in this country is focused on computers and the high-tech industry and has a variety of positions available for a wide variety of talented employees.
“Not everyone is college-bound,” he said. “I didn’t graduate from college, but the one thing I had was the ambition to be better, and that has to come from within. You need to try to improve yourself every single day.”
“We brought a group of students last year, and the kids are still talking about the jobs they saw,” Pelletier said. “They have assembly, soldering, management; it’s a nice assortment.”
