Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) 2018 Welding Technology/Hatboro-Horsham High School graduate, Dan Kistner, never imagined that his welding education would take him to international locations. For the past several months, Kistner has been working as a welder/fabricator at Environmental Tectonics Corporation (ETC) based out of Southampton. He recently returned from a welding project in Dubai through ETC. He will return to Dubai in late summer to complete the project.
While in 8th grade, Kistner visited EASTERN during an 8th grade trip with Hatboro-Horsham – which was his first introduction to welding as a career field. Prior to enrolling in Welding Technology as a junior in high school, Kistner accepted a summer job where he was able to shadow a welder. After the visit to EASTERN and learning more about welding at his summer job – he knew this was the right career field for him.
