Mr. Richard Kersey

Hello, my name is Richard Kersey. I am the Welding & Sheet Metal Instructor, here at Hephzibah High School. I have been in the welding trade for twenty-eight years. I have been overseeing the welding program at Hephzibah for three years. The welding program at Hephzibah is a way for students to learn about the welding and sheet metal trade. My program is based upon hands-on learning, and my goal as an educator is to prepare students to enter the workforce. Not only do I focus on welding and sheet metal, but also on how to remain safe in an industrial setting.


I graduated from Hephzibah High in 1991 and my children were also graduates of Hephzibah High. I want to ensure every student learns something in my course so that the community of Hephzibah continues to thrive.  


Tutoring hours are on Wednesdays from 3:00-3:30 in the afternoon.
