The lack of a student loan debt after graduating and the ability to earn while you learn has become increasingly attractive to graduating students. The IKORCC is using this opportunity to provide students with a wealth of knowledge on how to start their career in the trades with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. Last week, approximately 1,600 students from Western Kentucky attended the seventh annual Construction Career Day at Murray State University Cherry Expo Center. The students were able to experience interactive displays such as welding and masonry work. The variety of hands-on activities represented multiple career paths.

The IKORCC was r​epresented by Will Stewart, Business Representative based out of Local 357, and Sidney Nelson, Instructor based out of the Newburgh training facility. The students received instruction on the use of HILTI battery-operated screw-guns as well as information on the apprenticeship and the benefits of a career with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters.
