   Kaila Del Rosario may have found her calling at Ketchikan's Vigor shipyard, which has recently started offering job training to teens.

   The Ketchikan High School student had a rough start her freshman year, but after enrolling in a welding class she discovered she had a spark for hands-on work.

   “I’m actually proud of myself for the first time that I got myself out of that life that I used to do...and into something I’m actually passionate about," Del Rosario said in a recent KRBD news story.
