We wish to thank Paul Foster, from the Printing and Graphic Association Mid-Atlantic, Donna Linzey, from Vulcan-Hart, Ernie Prince, from Anne Arundel County Maintenance, Laura Dozier, from AACC, and Beth Meckel, from Mile One Collision, for their volunteer work at CATN this year. A volunteer Recognition Tea was held at Michael’s Eighth in Glen Burnie on May 19th to honor our volunteers.

“Food Fanatics Live”


The Culinary Arts Level II students were invited by US Food’s Chef Perry Canestraro to participate in US Foods “Food Fanatics Live” Food Show at the DC Convention Center.  The students helped US Food’s Food Fanatic Corporate Chefs prepare food samplings for their customer base who attended the Food Show.  Students also had the opportunity to tour the food show and meet professionals from all aspects of the hospitality industry. 

Uniforms USA, one of CATN’s business partners, donated logoed aprons and chef hats for the students to wear.   Students had the Food Fanatic Chefs sign their aprons at the end of the show.

Exothermic Welding


Ron Greenfield, from O.T. Hall and Sons, put on a demonstration of Exothermic Welding, more commonly known as CADWELD, for our level 2 Electricity and Welding students.  This process employs molten metal to permanently join electrical conductors.  

Snap-On Tools


Snap-On representative, Peter Lemieux, presented the Student Excellence Program, along with demonstrations of Snap-On tools, to our Transportation students at CAT-North.  The program allows students to earn discounts on various Snap-On tools while enrolled here at CAT-North.  The program is a great way to get the students started off while pursuing their passion for their trade.
