Construction competition for high school students highlights need for skills

Written by Kim Nix. Posted in LCCA News

cons1Good-paying jobs are plentiful in construction trades — for those students interested and committed to working.

That was the underlying message Thursday at the Northeast Georgia Workforce Development Alliance skills challenge.

“This is all about getting the kids exposed to the construction industry. There’s a huge need for skilled labor,” said Rodney Presley, construction technology instructor at Lanier Charter Career Academy.

The event highlighted competition in four trades — carpentry, masonry, plumbing and electricity — and provided information about those and training for them in “Construction University,” sessions with industry and technical college representatives.

It was the inaugural challenge at Lanier Charter Career Academy. About 20 students from five schools competed Thursday morning. Another competition — driving nails — was a sideline at the event.
