Paige Knowles

KICKASS CAREERS AMBASSADOR

Paige Knowles is a recent high school graduate of Parkland High School and Lehigh Career and Technical Institute (LCTI). Growing up, Paige was exposed to the trades by her parents, who are real estate investors. She was always at their properties to help with the renovations. Her decision to continue in the trades was fueled by her love for hands-on work and her awareness of the high demand for construction workers.

During her time in the plumbing and heating lab at LCTI, she learned a variety of useful technical skills, as well as soft skills. Paige was named one of two “Outstanding Career and Technical Education Seniors” at LCTI, and was the featured speaker for their senior recognition night. She was named president of SkillsUSA, an organization within LCTI that focused on leadership, for two consecutive years, and was also a district-level officer this past year. Due to her involvement in SkillsUSA, Paige was able to compete in plumbing competitions. In her junior year, she won gold at districts, and silver at states. She restarted at the district level this past year as a senior, and won gold again, but the state and national competitions were canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Paige was also able to work at a local plumbing and heating company for about two years, where she learned many valuable skills. Since graduation, she has been contacted by many companies, but she is determined to stay focused on being an advocate for the trades, specifically for women and the youth. Paige has begun her journey as an advocate by becoming more involved in Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls, as well as being featured on multiple trade-related podcasts.

When Paige isn’t focused on the trades, she enjoys spinning flags and weapons with her indoor color guard team, Moxie Guard, as well as finding new ways to be creative and build success.
