Natalie J. RhoadesA welding and fabrication engineering technology student, who recently completed an internship with Volvo Construction Equipment, was given an online shout-out by her summer employer for an “exceptional performance” at SkillsUSA nationals. Natalie J. Rhoades, of Weedville, was one of three women on Penn College’s welding fabrication team that competed in Louisville, Kentucky, in late June. “It’s fantastic to have such talented and dedicated young professionals as Natalie launching their careers with Volvo CE, and we want to congratulate her and her team for their performance,” said Gustavo Casagrandi, vice president of Shippensburg operations. “We believe that supporting young talent will help benefit the entire construction equipment industry and we are happy to play any part we can in helping young people pursue a career in the manufacturing fields.”
