Professional Biography

My name is L.J. Kruckenberg, and I have been given the incredible opportunity to bring welding back to Castle Rock High School. I, myself, graduated from CRHS in 2005. I'm a full time employee at Weyerhaeuser Western Timberlands. I work in the export yard in Longview, just under the Lewis and Clark Bridge. I switched from day shift to swing shift to accommodate welding instruction during the day. 

When I found out that CRHS was unable to find an instructor interested in starting the program, it got me thinking. The more I thought about it, the more I remembered how when I was in school there were tons of us wanting to take welding. So I figured, I would see what I could do to take on this great opportunity. After a ton of planning and hard work, the program is really coming together. More great things are coming and it is gonna be a great industry based experience for the students.

I look forward to keeping the community informed of all the awesome things taking place in our state of the art welding lab.
