Anthis Students Explore Construction Trades Career Options - May 13, 2014
Anthis Career Center will host a career day for students in the Construction Trades program to learn more about the careers available in the community. Representatives from various trade groups will visit Anthis on Thursday, May 15, to talk to students about career paths and offer hands-on activities to students.
Representatives from the following groups will be present during morning and afternoon sessions:
- Painters and finishers
- Professional drivers and deliverers
- Landscape/landscape design/architects
- Sheet metal workers
- Local colleges and universities
- Tile and terrazzo
- Cement finishers
- Welders and iron workers
- Project managers and supervisors
Students will also have an opportunity to show off their project – the Student Project House at 7924 Bridle Creek Crossing in Beckett’s Run Subdivision. Students will provide a tour of the house, and afterward, will participate in a round-table discussion about the trades.
“This is an exciting way to show our students what they can do with the skills they are learning at Anthis Career Center,” said Construction Trades Instructor Christopher Roberts. “Many of our students already graduate high school ready to enter skilled trades, and we hope many more will see the opportunities that exist for solid careers with good wages and benefits.”
