Rafael Santiago

Hi, my name is Rafael Santiago, I’m a 2010 graduate of “Ralph R McKee Vocational H.S.”
From a first hand experience McKee H.S formulates young men and women to become part of the working class with great career opportunities and/or provides a substantial education to start college. Today I’m part of  Local Union 638 Steamfitters of the NYC building trades; which I have been for over 10 years. Traits of a Steamfitter consist of blue print reading, HVAC piping systems, power houses, refrigeration systems and sprinkler systems just to name a few. The Construction Tech program I became part of while attending McKee prepared me for the Blue Collar World. The program has taught me responsibility, common blue print reading, using the proper tools to complete a job, working well with others and most importantly being on time!!
