Damien Cherico

Damien Cherico is comes from Clarion, a neighboring town of Venango County. He moved to Franklin and started at Webco Industries in Oil City as a Plant Metallurgist in July 2018.

After graduating from Clarion High School, Damien studied at Penn State University’s Main Campus in State College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering.

Damien has enjoyed living in our area and appreciates the beauty here, and how nice the people are, especially his co-workers at Webco. He has been busy at work, but plans to get more involved in the community in the near future.

At Penn State, Damien was a member of the Glee Club and still enjoys singing. When growing up, his family would spend weekends at his grandparents’ house on the Clarion River and at his family’s summer house in Maryland, so he has always loved water activities, like sailing.

He enjoys a variety of other outdoor activities, too, and plans to explore more in the area. Besides being outside, another hobby of Damien’s is working on computers and playing video games.

In the future, Damien has goals to go back to school for an MBA or other master’s degree, continue working hard at Webco, meet more people, and eventually settle down and start a family here.
