The week of April 9th-13th has been designated as NC Construction Career Awareness Week. Beam Construction will be spearheading the 2018 Construction Career Awareness / Hiring Event on Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 from 9am – 5pm at the Sims Legion Park located at 1201-1299 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Gastonia NC. This event is in partnership with Gaston County Schools, City of Gastonia, Gaston County Economic Development and the Gaston Workforce Development Board. This event will offer hands-on-activities for over 800 Gaston County students to explore Construction Skilled Trades. During the event “top-notch” students will have the opportunity to compete with other Gaston County students to showcase their skills in each chosen construction area: Carpentry, Masonry, Electrical, and Welding. In addition, employers have the opportunity to meet with students and offer summer internships to students.
Student competitions are scheduled to begin at 9:00 am. Students from Gaston County Middle Schools will attend from 9:30 am – 11:00 am. High School Trade & Industrial students and their instructors will attend from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.
