Jeff Campbell, vice president at Campbell Industrial Contractors, Inc. has returned to his alma mater on the board of directors.
Campbell attended school here “quite a few years ago” he said, and long-time mentor Jim Struble recently encouraged him to fill a spot and get involved at the construction academy again. Campbell said this is an opportunity for him to build up the school that helped him achieve a career in the trades and further the family business that his great-grandpa started in 1947.
“This is an opportunity for me to build up the school that helped me achieve a career in the trades and further the family business that my great-grandpa started in 1947,” said Cambell.
“I am the third generation that has come to work and manage our contracting business. If I learned anything since working there when I was 8 years old, it’s to not take for granted what you have and how you got there,” Campbell said. “I never saw myself as a board-of-directors person, but whatever I can do to further build up the trades, I’ll step up.”
Campbell joins five other dedicated individuals working to increase awareness of the trades and provide a pipeline of qualified trade workers to fill the jobs available in the workforce.
