Person of the Week: Darin Kearns
This week’s Person of the Week is an instructor at the Wexford-Missaukee Career Technical Center.
Darin Kearns is a Metal Fabrication and Welding Instructor and he received the Excellence in Teaching Award from the Northern Michigan Welding Educators Organization.
Kearns founded the Organization in 2000 with other welding educators throughout the state to focus on the rigor and relevance in the curriculum and classroom which help welding students have a direct pathway from classroom to work.
Kearns says, “A true measure of an Instructor’s success is measured by my student’s success after their school to work transition.”
For his hard work in the community, Darin Kearns is this week’s person of the week.
