WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Plumbing is being added to the list of career curriculum students can receive at the Career Education Center in Wichita Falls.

Master Plumber, Danny Cozby, is launching the first-ever plumbing program for the WFISD. Cozby has 43 years experience in the industry and has a successful business in Burkburnett.

The program got a delayed start due to unexpected open-heart surgery Cozby had on the first day of school. 

Following a six-week recovery period, Cozby is now teaching 15 students about tool recognition and the mission of a plumber. 

"A plumber's job is to protect the health of the nation," Cozby said in a press release.

Cozby said plumbers 'civilize the world' because they allow large masses of people to live safely in small places. 

Plumbers are needed according to Cozby and his students will be prepared to earn their plumbing apprenticeship license which requires 2,000 hours of work and their Class D Water License through the city. 

Those accomplishments will allow students to be hired right out of high school by the City of Wichita Falls.
