Jacob Gilbert UBCTS May Student of The MonthCongratulations Jake Welding & Fabrication Technology and Pennridge High School

Our May Student of the Month is Jacob Gilbert. Jacob is a senior in our Welding Technology & Fabrication program and a senior at Pennridge High School. He is a first honors student and received his program's most dedicated and outstanding level I awards. This year, Jacob earned a Gold medal in the solo welding competition at the SkillsUSA District 11 competition. He advanced to the state competition in April, where he earned a Bronze medal.

Jake is a Cooperative Education student employed at Hartman Systems and Controls in Perkasie since January. He is responsible for the welding and fabrication of bulk bag filling and discharge stands, weigh hoppers, conveyor systems, and various other bulk material handling projects.

His mentor at Hartman Systems, Blaine Moyer regrets not being able to attend but did pass along the following statement: When we learned about Jake receiving the student of the month honor, we were not shocked at all. I have yet to know how he is doing at his home school, but I can tell you how he is doing at his tech school, as he tells me daily what he is working on, how he did on his tests, what welding competition he is going to, and what he won at the said competition, not only showing me, but everyone who walked by! Jake is very proud of the fact that he is a welder. He is also very proud of his welds. Yesterday afternoon, he came over to me as if he had a question about the job he was working on; he had no questions. He proudly held up a welded flange with a beautiful row of dimes and perfect coloring; it was a well-welded piece. Jake is a hardworking, reliable, and thoughtful young man. I am grateful to know him and to work alongside him.

Outside of school, Jacob is the goalie on the varsity ice hockey team, which won states last year. His team also had a 2nd place finish at this year’s Flyers Cup. Jacob is well-deserving of the Student of the Month. Congratulations!!
