Cooperative Education Spotlight- Blayne Brymesser
When Blayne Brymesser was in 9th grade, he knew he wanted to fix things when he grew up. He was accepted into the Diesel Technology program later that year and has never looked back; now two and a half years later, he is currently employed by John W Gleim Jr., Inc. through the Cooperative Education program at CPAVTS. Blayne attends Cumberland Valley High School each morning and then reports to work at 11 AM. Every day brings a new adventure with equipment repairs, preventive maintenance, welding fabrication, hydraulic hose repairs, and many more trade related tasks. The classroom setting and simulated work in the Diesel Tech program have provided the entry level skills necessary for Blayne to be successful on the job, and at the end of each work day, Blayne then returns to the family farm to once again put his vocational education to work. With his knowledge, skillset, and work ethic far superior to most 18 year olds, he is a welcome addition to the workforce.
