If you follow us on social media, you’ve probably noticed a lot of posts lately regarding the benefits of working in the skilled building trades. These include: a schooling cycle that is less expensive and shorter than a 4-year degree, great pay, better job security than almost any other career, wide availability of jobs, and the personal satisfaction of working with your hands.
We’re noticing that as the current skilled workforce reaches retirement age, there are very few young people waiting in the wings to take their place. This is puzzling to us, because who wouldn’t want to make sawdust for a living?
To generate interest and support in this great career path, we’ve decided to put our money where our mouths are. Announcing the Allrounder Remodeling Scholarship program. This scholarship is available through the IGH BEST Foundation. It will be awarded to a Simley senior who plans to attend a vocational, technical or community college or apprenticeship program with the intention of learning a skilled trade related to home building or remodeling. The scholarship will be awarded to a student who has demonstrated strong academic achievement and displayed good character and citizenship.
Information packets and applications will be available at Simley in early February. Applications are due in early March. We look forward to meeting the winner in May when the scholarship winners are announced!
