It was a HUGE honor to ring in Construction Appreciation Week by holding the first ever Build Your Future event at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds. Vantage students in Carpentry, Construction, Electricity, Industrial Mechanics, & Welding, along with local business partners & sponsors, took months of planning to provide local freshman & sophomores of Crestview, Lincolnview & Van Wert hands on activities related to the Construction field! We are so proud of our Vantage students & Instructors their collaborations with local employers to provide this opportunity & exposure to thriving careers right here in their back yard!
