Calvin Tisdale, Shipfitter
Working at the same place for years with no salary increases, Calvin Tisdale remembers a time when throwing a birthday party for his daughters wasn’t possible. He took a chance and enrolled in classes with Ingalls Shipbuilding to become a shipfitter and now things like birthday parties and new cars for his 3 daughters aren’t just dreams, they are his reality.
Ingalls Shipbuilding has partnered with local community colleges and high schools that are providing training in: Shipfitting, Joiner, Pipe Insulation, Painting and Sheetmetal.
