Why Construction

My interest in construction comes from my last two summers of working in the construction industry for a painting company. I enjoyed being around the job sites and assisting with the planning and management to complete a project.


Outside of school, my hobbies consist of mainly outdoor activities. I enjoy hunting and fishing as well as snowboarding and riding ATVs.

Career Goal
