High School Grads Earn $20 an Hour, Free College Through Apprenticeships

Skilled trade apprenticeships are in high demand and help avoid student debt. Austin Grzywacz was a B+ student at Huron High School and figured he would go to college after graduation last year. But a technical education program known as mechatronics, which emphasizes electronics and mechanical engineering, convinced him to reconsider. Grzywacz is one of many young people across the state choosing to forego a four-year degree in favor of a faster track to a technical career.
