Elliott-Lewis Corporation has been selected as an advisor to the Vocational Program at Edison High School by the School District of Philadelphia. “College degrees can cost easily cost more than $100,000 today,” said Fran McDonald, Elliott-Lewis’ director of marketing and point person for the advisory program. “Sadly, when students graduate, they can face low job prospects and a lot of debt. Conversely, a student with solid basic HVAC or plumbing skills can look forward to solid starting pay and the potential to earn more than $100,000 a year once he or she has become truly proficient. Plus skilled mechanics have an opportunity to start their own business and be their own bosses someday.”
Elliott-Lewis will assist the School District in refining its programs to make sure the curriculum covers the required information plus keeps pace with the latest innovations in their industry.
