Center For Arts & Technology Alumnus Shares Story With TCHS Students

anna Wagner (Acero workforce development specialist), Kyle Miller (manufacturing engineer manager) and Paulina Stawarz (recruiting coordinator) spoke to TCHS Brandywine students about making the most of their education, transferable workplace skills and current job openings at Acero Precision.

Because of the technical skills learned at the Brandywine campus of the Center for Arts & Technology as well as Universal Technical Institute, Kyle Miller’s meandering career path has finally landed him at an unexpectedly perfect job fit, and he recently shared his success story with Brandywine’s Technical College High School students.

The Technical College High School (TCHS) Brandywine Campus is a public career and technical education high school operated by the Chester County Intermediate Unit.

“It’s important to keep your options open and don’t get too down on yourself,” he said in a press release. “The skills you learn at this school give you a lot of options. You just have to think creatively about them.”

Eleven years out of school, Miller is now the recently promoted manufacturing engineer manager at Acero Precision in West Chester.

“I like being able to take a blueprint, a piece of paper, and turn it into something real that helps people,” he said — high-precision components for motorsport, analytical and diagnostic instruments, and medical devices.

“We make a difference that doesn’t end on the shop floor,” Acero’s Workforce Development Specialist Tanna Wagner added. “Everything that we produce is bigger than us. It goes beyond us.”
