CATC Welcomes 2 New Staff Members
Capital Area Technical Center is pleased to announce 2 new staff members.
Romeo Roy was hired as the Assistant Instructor in the Auto Body program. Romeo completed the Auto Body program at Mid-Maine Technical Center in Waterville when he was in high school. He has found that Career and Technical Education has greatly changed since he went through it. He finds it is no longer like a hobby shop, but it is preparing students for business and industry. He spent his career working first for Cives Steel and then for the Maine Department of Transportation. In his spare time, Romeo restores muscles cars, builds engines and drags races. He lives in Augusta with his wife, Sylvia, two daughters and a niece.
Jim Wiggin was hired as the Assistant Instructor in the Machine Tool & Welding
program. Jim spent his career working at Proctor & Gamble in Auburn and as the metal ware division manager at CM Almy in Pittsfield. Jim finds machining exciting and hopes to pass that on to the students. He points out that everything you own, at one point, a machinist probably made as a prototype. In his spare time, Jim is working in his home machine shop restoring antique tractors and motorcycles. Jim lives in Benton with his wife, Robin. He raised three children and has 4 grandchildren.
