The Fenton Area Public School Administrators spent the day with Operating Engineers 324 at our Construction Career Center on August 11th in Howell. During this time, we shared ways to prepare students for careers in the skilled trades as well as giving the administrators hands-on experience as a lift director, as a rigger, as a signals person and as the operator. The event continues to allow Operating Engineers 324 to partner with public schools by being able to give schools a hands-on experience. Administrators will be better prepared to educate on how a career in skilled trades relates to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and what other opportunities are available after high school.
