Hagerstown construction school honors apprentices

July 02, 2008

The Associated Builders and Contractors-Barr Construction Institute in Hagerstown held a ceremony recently to recognize the first group of Washington County High School juniors to complete their first year of apprenticeship training.

The training was in construction trades, including plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and included a balance between classroom and hands-on training.

All students were offered summer employment in the construction industry, according to Bob Simmers, education director at the institute. Company insurance guidelines limited some opportunities for those younger than 18.

Students will return to the institute Aug. 20 to begin their second year of apprenticeship training.

Plumbing students include Quin Bard, William Turner, Cody Studebaker, Ben Godlove, Steven Davis, Jeremy Turner, Woody Carmack, Tyler Ernde, Taylor Spessard and Collin Sanders.
