On October 28, Capital Region BOCES hosted a “Build Your Future” event to celebrate Careers in Construction Month. During the day, Albany-area high school students saw demonstrations of heavy equipment and attended hands-on skills sessions. They also learned more about jobs in the construction industry from LeChase and other local businesses.
“I was fortunate to be exposed to construction at a young age. In fact, I started working at LeChase in high school,” said LeChase Regional Director of Business Development Mike Corey, who attended. “The construction industry offers great opportunities to work on exciting projects that have a positive impact in the community. This event allowed me to share my experience with students and make them aware of the variety of careers available in construction.”
