Local high school students specializing in Career and Technical Education (CTE) recently had the unique opportunity to visit an active jobsite at Wyatt Johnson Automotive Group in Clarksville, TN and gain firsthand experience in the construction industry. The visit aimed to expose students to the technical skills required in the field and highlight the diverse career opportunities available.
The immersive field trip provided the students with a valuable chance to observe and interact with professionals working on a construction project. The visit was part of an ongoing effort to increase visibility and promote careers in the construction industry. During the visit, students had the opportunity to observe the different stages of a construction project, while interacting with professionals from various construction trades, including carpenters, electricians, and plumbers, who shared insights into their respective fields.
“The purpose of this visit was to expose students to the exciting world of construction and showcase the multitude of technical skills and career opportunities available in our community,” said Sidney Johnson- Dealer Principal at Wyatt Johnson. “By providing them with this firsthand experience, we hope to inspire and motivate the next generation of professionals.”
Through initiatives like these, T.W.
