A member of the Williams Lake Blue Fins, Rebecca participated with the swim club’s competitive team for many years.

    ~ Kalub Scaiano, son of Gibraltar Automotive Mechanic Tyler Scaiano, graduated from Lake City Secondary this past June. After being accepted into the ITA Youth Train in Trades Program, he completed the heavy duty/commercial transport mechanics foundation program at TRU before starting his work experience program at Gibraltar in May. Kalub was excited to begin gaining experience and hours towards the first year of his apprenticeship, and enjoys working on the large equipment at the mine. Looking forward to what the future has in store, Kalub is fully motivated to become a certified heavy-duty mechanic. He is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Gibraltar team and thanks everyone who has helped him learn more about heavy duty mechanics.
