37th Annual Kiwanis College Fair! 8 am to 1 pm and then 6-8 pm. Thanks to CW Park, SMCCO and 3rd year Katie Ruckers for helping and manning the table with me!
I was lucky enough to have breakfast with John Carroll and was able to hand him his SMART LU#24 pin. I am glad to have had a chance to work with this man, he is a true mentor. Thanks John!
Outreach meeting with NRT & Associates Nancy Tidwell about Diversity & Inclusion and ways NRT can help skilled trades with outreach efforts. Nancy was very interested in the process of bringing in new apprentices and promised to send applicants our way. Nice to have Nancy Tidwell working with the Sheet Metal Workers.
Last minute call from SMART LU#24 member Brian Huston who managed to get us into a breakfast meeting with 26 home school counselors that were visiting Eastland Career Center. After meeting and talking to the room of 50+ people, I was allowed to go back to the welding lab and talk to the welding students. They received an award for the class with the best attendance while I was putting on my presentation. That is the exact kind of students we are looking for; welders with great attendance!
