Mike Cyr Returns To Teach Welding At Lewiston Adult Education

 

 

Welding I teacher Mike Cyr, left, gets congratulated by Lewiston Adult Education Director Bill Grant on his retirement from his full-time welding job in 2018. Cyr will teach Welding I in the Winter-Spring 2019 semester as part of his retirement.

 

            Welding students will have a couple options to choose from in 2019 thanks to a returning teacher.

            Mike Cyr, who retired as a full-time welder in 2018, will teach Welding I again in the Winter-Spring 2019 semester at Lewiston Adult Education. He had taken the fall semester off when he began his retirement.

            Cyr’s return means adult education students will have Welding I and Welding II as class options in the new brochure. John Clements will teach Welding II on a different night in the Winter-Spring 2019 semester. Students may take both classes.

            Welding is one of a number of workforce classes offered at Lewiston Adult Education. Classes for the new semester will include Certified Nursing Assistant, Notary Public and Construction training. All class information is listed in the new brochure that has gone out to Lewiston and Auburn residents.

            For more information about welding classes and other workforce classes, head to the Lewiston Adult Education website at www.lewiston.maineadulted.org or call the main office at 207-795-4141.
