Jonas was a 2017 graduate of Belle Vernon High School and Mon Valley CTC. During his early high school years, Jonas was struggling to connect with his school and learning. This created a lot of anxiety for him and ultimately led Jonas to skipping classes.

During his junior year, he got involved with the BotsIQ team at his school and he and his teacher quickly learned that he had a passion and an aptitude for this work. This led to his senior year and a co-op relationship with his BotsIQ industry advisor, Ductmate Industries.

Jonas graduated from high school and was hired by Ductmate where he continues to learn new skills and advance within the company. This fall, we are excited to report that Jonas has entered the Sheet Metal Apprenticeship and continues to thrive at Ductmate.
