Kalei Kipp is the only girl in Cedar Crest High School’s welding program. Even though only three percent of welders in the U.S. are women, instructor Mr. Grumbine says the few girls that have taken his class are some of his best students. Kalei is seriously considering a career in the field despite the lack of female representation and its reputation as a “man’s” job.
