Paige Knowles

Paige attended Lehigh Career and Technical Institute (LCTI) to study plumbing and heating during her high school years (2016-2020). In her time there, she gained a variety of knowledge, including technical and soft skills. A leadership-focused organization within LCTI, SkillsUSA, named her president for two consecutive years, and she was named one of only two “Outstanding Career and Technical Education Seniors” her graduating year, earning her the featured speaker title at her class’ senior recognition night.

Paige’s advocacy for the trades can be seen in her involvement in Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls, being featured on multiple trade-related podcasts, promotional videos, and a documentary! She also holds ambassador positions at Kickass Careers, Observer tools, VIIZR, and TradesLink. She is a construction management graduate and current HVAC student at Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) and has taken public speaking courses to facilitate her speaking to over 5,000 students across the U.S. and Canada. These speeches have ranged from topics like exploration of the trades to finding a suitable career path and much more.

With 2 published children’s books and a plethora of content on multiple social media outlets, Paige is paving the way for the next generation of skilled trade workers. She hopes to encourage more students, especially girls, to break the “glass ceiling” and pursue a career path that they can be passionate about. 

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.
