Student of the Year Finalist: Maggie Zielinski

Maggie Zielinski a 2022 Student of the Year Finalist!


Maggie is a second year Welding student at BCAVTS. Her teacher shares that she has excelled exponentially over the past two years! Maggie has passed American Welding Society (AWS) Certifications in the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years. She is a High Honor student at Seneca Valley High School and a member of NTHS at BCAVTS. For her Seneca Valley Senior Project, Maggie created a beautiful hand-crafted, welded waterfall. Her project was the talk of the Welding program, and the school, for some time! Many staff members admired the project and made a point to stop by Welding and congratulate Maggie and express their amazement! Also, Maggie shared that she has enjoyed the opportunities she has received this school year and feels that her experiences have helped her grow as a person and as a student. Moreover, she couldn’t have done it without her family, friends and mentors! As full as Maggie’s life is, she makes time for a part-time job and has worked at Chick-fil-A for the past three years. She of course enjoys welding, riding horses and attending the gym in her free time. Maggie’s future plans are to work as a welder and to pursue a career with the Steamfitters. We are very proud of Maggie!
