Hi! I'm Raymond Goss (He/Him), I am married to Jennifer Goss (who teaches Early Childhood Development her at A. K. Smith) I have a step-son named Max and a daughter named Grace. I am a graduate of Portage High School, where like the students in my class I went through the welding technology vocational class earning dual credit through Ivy Tech. Shortly after high school I joined the Army as an infantryman serving a 14 month tour to Iraq and then reclassifying to Aviation Structural Repairs, where I again deployed this time for 12 months to Afghanistan. After 7 and a half years of service I was medically retired. Upon returning to the local region I began work for a year in the Local 20 Sheet Metal Workers Union before getting offered the position I now hold here at A.K. Smith.
