New engineering program preparing students for future

I would like to extend my gratitude to the generous sponsors of our new Engineering and Construction Co. program, collaboration between YouthEntity and industry professionals that help students prepare for work and careers after high school.

Our sponsors include Gould Construction, Wagner CAT, Glenwood Structural & Civil Inc., Casey Concrete, Lowe’s, Gallegos Inc., Trusfab Inc., Pioneer Steel Inc., Glenwood Sunset Rotary Club, Grand River Construction Co., D.M. Neuman Construction Co., Umbrella Roofing Inc., Holy Cross Energy, FCI Constructors Inc., Draper White Photography and Martin Auctioneering.

I also would like to thank our dedicated volunteer instructors who gave their time and expertise to help our students build skills, professionalism, teamwork and social capital: Sandy Lowell, Mark Gould Jr. and Seth Cole.

Lastly, I am grateful to our community of supporters who attended last week’s auction of the dog palace constructed by the students as their final project. All funds will be used to support the program and future Engineering and Construction Co. students.

Together, we are engaging and empowering youth for future success through real-world learning experiences. More at
