A Kaukauna High grad organized his future thanks to dual credit.
While in high school, once Trevor Spoehr discovered that machinists make a good living and are always busy, he was all in.
After graduating in 2019, Trevor immediately took a summer course at FVTC and is well into the Machine Tool Technician two-year program. He believes that taking dual credit classes in high school gave him a better understanding of college-level content and the machine tool trade.
“I enjoy the self-paced, hands-on learning at Fox Valley Tech,” says Trevor, who is also working at Advantage Machine in Kaukauna while going to college.
Each year, companies large and small hire machine tool graduates from FVTC. According to graduate employment data, these graduates earn about $52,000 a year after five years as machinists.
