Sunday, March 6 NEICA/NEIBT had great turnout for our first ever Construction Career Job Fair hosted before a Mad Ants game in the Century Club Room. We invited students from Garrett High School, the Impact Center of Kendallville and Fort Wayne Community School Career Academy. There were fifteen tables of contractors and union apprenticeship programs ready to give the students the information to continue a career in construction. It was great to see parents and instructors from the programs in attendance too!
What a great success FWCS had at their competition this past Saturday at the Career Academy. These high school students really showed their enthusiasm for a career in construction!
Darryl Esterline from the Sheet Metal Workers Local 20 brought an exciting hands on lesson of making Christmas Tree ornaments from sheet metal. The club members used a metal stamp to create the shape, then polished them and personalized them using an engraving tool. A group of students were heard discussing how awesome the project was and how they like being able to give the ornaments as gifts. Thank you Darryl for your thoughtful planning and awesome project.
