CLEARFIELD – Ben Panebianco attended the Clearfield County Career & Technology Center (CCCTC) for two years and graduated in 2013. He was a student in the electrical occupations program.
During his time at CCCTC, he said the experience he gained while attending CCCTC gave him the knowledge he needed to get a high-paying job right out of school with Elco Electric.
He also was hired by IBEW No. 5, which is an electrical union and covers about half of Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until after he graduated he realized the impact CCCTC had on his future career. He also mentions that studying and the willingness to succeed is very important.
Panebianco is only one example of how CCCTC graduates use their education to strengthen the industry in their field of study.
