STATESBORO – On Wednesday afternoon Sack Company donated construction supplies to the Statesboro High School (SHS) construction class. The construction class is a part of the Career Technical & Agricultural Education (CTAE) career pathway courses developed by the state of Georgia and the Educating Georgia’s Future Workforce initiative, which leverages partnerships with industry and higher education to ensure students have the skills they need to thrive in the future workforce.
Josh Hall, Construction Pathway Teacher at SHS, said “The tools provided by Sack will allow for each student to have a tool in hand to continue learning by doing hands-on electrical and plumbing projects.”
The tools included lineman pliers, side cutters, tubing cutters, PVC cutters, speed squares and wire strippers. This is in addition to the hard hats provided by Sack Company last year.
“By providing high-quality materials and tools, we can ensure that students are learning with industry standard equipment. This enhances their educational experience and thus makes the students more prepared for actual construction jobs after graduation”, Paul Roesel, Chief Executive Officer at Sack Company, said.
According to Associated Builders and Contractors, the construction industry will need to bring in more than 342,000 new workers on top of normal hiring to meet industry demand in 2024.
“We are always looking for ways to give back to our community but it’s really special when it benefits not only our industry, but the future of our community and being able to supply the workforce needed for the growth in our region”, Roesel said.
