Career & Trades April Newsletter

April 05, 2022


​"Every person is different. We have different minds, hearts, experiences, and dreams. Given this truth, it’s incredibly reasonable to say that it’s an injustice to stereotype the skilled trades.

The skilled trades need bright, passionate people to enter the workforce with a clear understanding of their contribution to not only their place of employment but also, the community. This understanding is one that needs to start at a young age, and it’s one that communities, schools, and families play a pivotal role in fostering. The skilled trades lead to a quality paycheck and an opportunity for an immense sense of pride in one’s work, and that’s the truth. " - Leisa Ballard, SD43 parent
