“I received a motorbike when I was younger, and had to figure out how to keep it running. Since then I’ve gotten into mini bikes and moved onto a dirt bike, there are parts all over my house right now!" said Nolan. "I actually was in the Welding program last year because I wanted to know how to fabricate parts for the bikes I was working with. Next year I’m headed to the University of Northwestern Ohio to get certified in Heavy Truck and Equipment.”
