CovCath Junior Wins KY FAME Award

Covington Catholic High School junior Joseph Wuestefeld was the grand prize winner of the KY FAME and Gateway Community College Open House giveaway.

KY FAME, or the Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education, is "a company-sponsored partnership of regional employers who share the goal of creating a pipeline of highly skilled workers. Employers actually start training students while they are still in school. Students receive hands-on and classroom training that gives them access to high-paying advanced manufacturing jobs.”

Wuesterfeld is interested in manufacturing engineering and toured several facilities associated with KY FAME and attended an open house at Gateway. He was entered into a drawing and was awarded an HP laptop as the grand prize. Presenting the prize to him were Wade Williams, Senior Vice President for Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Development Corporation, and Mary Grace Cassar, Organizational Development Process Manager with Bosch.

Covington Catholic High School is a Blue Ribbon of Excellence award winning college preparatory high school within the Diocese of Covington.  It is an all-male school of 604 whose mission is to embrace the Gospel message of Jesus Christ in order to educate students spiritually, academically, physically and socially.
