We first “met” Sara Bingham back in 2008. She had just taken first place in welding for the Skills USA Championship . That win netted her a visit to Lincoln Electric and some hands on training. She then went on to Uintah Basin Applied Technology College and then the Navy where she now works as a Hull Technician stationed in Japan!
You can read all about it here on Vernal Express, “UBATC training catapults woman into Navy career”
It’s so inspiring to see a young woman like Sara succeed, AND to apply those skills in service of her country– especially the Navy! As the daughter of a Navy Captain, the granddaughter of two Admirals, and the great granddaughter of a Navy Lieutenant, I’ve a special place in my heart for the US Navy…
So way to go!!
And if YOU are a woman welder, or you know one who would be a great feature for our New Rosies column, drop me a line!
