“Building Trades Program Holds Dog Days of Summer Event”

Mount Vernon, OH – Knox County Career Center’s (KCCC) Building Trades program
held their annual Dog Days of Summer event at KCCC on Friday, September 30th.


Juniors and seniors in Building Trades had the opportunity to meet and talk with
contractors throughout the three-hour event. There were 27 business representatives from
various construction companies who attended the event. Students had the opportunity to have
lunch with the contractors, ask them questions, and get acquainted with them.


Valley Interior Systems sponsored the Dog Days of Summer event and provided all of
the food.


“We are very grateful and appreciative to Valley Interior Systems for sponsoring the
event and supporting our students,” said Clippinger.


Clippinger added, “It was great to have the building open to contractors again. We
appreciate so many of the contractors coming to this event and recognizing the value of the
students coming out of KCCC. They had the opportunity to talk with each student, find out their
interests, and get the first chance of recruiting them at their business.”


“Dog Days is a great opportunity for our students to speak to potential employers and
learn the importance of shaking hands, eye contact, and how to handle an informal interview.
We are grateful for the contractors who took time to be with Mr. Clippinger and his students,”
Kathy Greenich, Superintendent, commented.
