Construction Career Center Opens In Hamilton County

This fall, the new Construction Career Center will open its doors and begin training students for high-demand trades and professions.

Dozens of partners worked diligently to bring this project to life, and it shows exactly what is possible when we combine hard work and cooperation with the best interests of students. This is a monumental step forward for our community, and my hope is that it is just the first step of many toward the goal of creating opportunities for every student in Hamilton County.
