HVAC/R Student Honored

   Perry Technical Institute’s November Student of the Month Chase Gordon is the type of student that Justin McRitchie likes to send into industry.

     He is skilled and knowledgeable, yet always hungry to learn more. He is confident, yet humble and always willing to help his classmates. “Chase is just the kind of guy we are happy to put the Perry name on and send out to work in industry,” said McRitchie, head of Perry’s Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Technology Program.

   Raised in Shelton, Gordon moved to Yakima to help care for his great-grandmother while attending Perry. He was attracted to the HVAC/R program because the trade promised to be the right combination of hands-on work that was also mentally challenging. “I wanted to work with my hands in a job that would also make me think,” he said.

     Gordon will graduate next month and he has already landed a job as an HVAC/R technician with Actionaire in Hoquiam.
