What our Alumni Say

RYAN KASIK, CLASS OF ’09  I  Irish Boat Shop

Q: What was the biggest benefit of attending GLBBS?
A: The biggest benefit for me was the skills learned through hands-on training and applying it. Because of GLBBS, I was able to begin my career right after graduation in an [employer] apprenticeship program.

BENJAMIN DIAMOND, Class of ’19  I  Lyman-Morse

Q: What was the biggest benefit of attending GLBBS?
A: The biggest benefit of attending GLBBS is the opportunity to confidently make mistakes. I was able to pick up and refine some “tricks of the trade” while messing up some pieces of wood and losing time. Many of those tricks I wouldn’t be able to try for the first time [at my new employer] for fear of lost time and materials.
