Lebanon Schools Promoting 'Go Build' Indiana
Lebanon Community Schools is leading an effort to get students interested trade and craftsmen careers.
Lebanon Schools Superintendent Dr. Robert Taylor says it's called "Go Build Indiana." Taylor says it's an effort to tackle a severe shortage in Indiana for jobs that aren't being filled as skilled craftsmen are retiring. In many cases, the positions don't require four-year college degrees.
Dr. Taylor says "Go Build Indiana," a continuing campaign, aims to engage contractors, architectural firms, electric companies and state lawmakers to help promote the industry and job opportunities that may eventually pay as high as $90,000 a year for young people who have proper training.
