Keagan Kelso is the April 2019 Student of the Month at Eastern Center for Arts and Technology in Willow Grove. He is in EASTERN’s Electrical Technology program and a senior at Hatboro-Horsham High School.
 
Keagan already understood the value of career and technical education, as his father also attended the Electrical Technology program at EASTERN. Keagan initially thought of enrolling in the Allied Health program, but after visiting EASTERN during a tour, he decided to pursue a career in the electrical field. He learned more about the electrical unions and aspires to travel the United States with these in-demand skills.
 
The summer after his first year in Electrical Technology, Keagan was selected by his instructor as a paid intern for EASTERN. Keagan was excited about being chosen for this opportunity because he could refine his electrical skills while working in a field that he loves. He has been an involved member of SkillsUSA,
EASTERN’s student leadership organization over the past two years.
 
Outside of EASTERN, Keagan is very involved in sports, such as baseball, soccer, and football. “Keagan is a great student with drive and ambition,” said Gary Felmey, EASTERN’s Electrical Technology Instructor. “He believes in setting a good example in the classroom and strives to give his best every day. I am proud of all he has accomplished in my class, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for him.”
 
After graduating from EASTERN and Hatboro-Horsham High School, Keagan hopes to get into the electrical union, and after his apprenticeship, he plans to enjoy a successful career as an electrician. Electrical Technology at EASTERN provides the essential hands-on and safety skills that a student needs to
pursue a rewarding career in the electrical construction industry. This two-year multi-faceted career program
enables the student to learn the basics of electricity as well as residential and commercial wiring, data cabling,
and basic fiber optic installation
