Our Happy Students
Hi, my name is Dominick Mecca reaching out regarding my years in McKee and my career after. I graduated in 2017 from McKee and the experience I had was great. Currently the job I have in local 137 is a sign hanger/fabricator we build and hang signs all over the 5 boroughs, Long Island and also upstate. The construction program prepared me very for my career by giving me a general idea of how the work force goes, teaching me about tools blueprints and a bunch of other stuff that really helped me build a good base to become a good worker once I was given the opportunity to join local 137. The picture of me below is me hanging signs for target at 2900 veterans rd W by the outer bridge
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!!
