Masonry/Bricklaying student, Devin Cox from Freedom Area School District and Arnold ‘Red’ Shaner, Masonry/Bricklaying instructor and owner of Redco Masonry, were guest speakers during last night’s Beaver Valley Contractors & Suppliers Association general meeting.
Mr. Shaner spoke first saying, “When you take pride in what you do, it shows. Devin is one of those who takes pride in what he does and I was fortunate to have good students like Devin this year.”
When it was Devin’s time to speak, he said, “I want to make a name for myself in the industry and use the skills I learned in Masonry. I want my future employer to know what I can do.”
Hopefully, Devin’s future employer will be the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers as he has an interview today with the organization as he would like to become an apprentice. Devin, GREAT JOB on your presentation last night and GOOD LUCK TODAY on that interview!
