  • Entering a high school welding program changed the course of Alex Shade’s young life

    “In high school, it’s books, books, books – everything you need to know is in a book. I can’t pick up a book and learn; I have to do it. So if you’re like me, construction is a lot more fun. If you’re a person who’s hands-on, construction is a good job for you.”
