The Mississippi Construction Education Foundation (MCEF) recently hosted hundreds of Mississippi career and technical students, along with aspiring apprentices, for one of the state's largest-ever craft competitions. The annual MCEF SkillsUSA State Championship featured more than 300 top-notch competitors from around the state in conjunction with the Passport to Careers (P2C) Expo and Counselors and CTE Directors Workshop.
Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves addressed the group during the event luncheon. He discussed pathways to success and talked about the importance of careers in construction. He advised students to never be afraid to dream big and to set goals to strive for achievements.
HBAM recently joined the MCEF board and looks forward to a long term partnership with the organization to help foster the future of the construction industry.
