Looking forward to next year, please take not that classes will begin the week of September 10, 2018 and commence the week of April 22nd, 2019. All apprentices are strongly encouraged to apply for the IEC Foundation’s Scholarship for next year. The deadline to apply is May 18th, 2018. The scholarship form can be found here (link) as well as in your classrooms. Any apprentice, who wishes to proofread their application with me, set up an appointment via phone call, text or email.

Lastly, I have been engaging in some public outreach in our community. I have had very positive visits with seniors at Mahoning County Career and Technical Center and Lawrence County Career and Technical Center, and the sophomores and juniors at Howland High School. March 15th , I will be representing our apprentice program at Columbiana County Career and Technical Center Career Fair, if you wish to have business cards or anything else representing your company present at our table, please let me know.
