Blackhawk Tech welding teacher breaking barriers, inspiring students
Liz Bryant was surrounded by men when she walked into her welding classroom at Blackhawk Technical College for the first time a few years ago.
Bryant had expected that because welding is a male-dominated field. But when the teacher walked in, suddenly Bryant wasn’t worried about a gender gap.
That teacher, Bobbi Bishofberger, is the chair of the college’s Manufacturing, Apprenticeship, Technology and Transportation Division.
