Rhea County High School Students Get a Look at Union Carpentry

Dozens of students from Rhea County High School in Evansville, Tennessee, learned the benefits of a career as a union carpenter recently at a Career Day, where they met leaders from the Southeastern Carpenters. Carpenters Local 74 Business Agent Rodney Graham and apprentice Kim Hall (shown, speaking with students) met with and talked with the students. More than 40 students talked with Rodney and Kim. A few already planned to become a union carpenter after graduation, thanks to the school’s excellent carpenter class, where students earn their OSHA 10 certification and other skills before graduating.

Rhea County High School officials plan on bringing students to the Carpenters’ Chattanooga Training Center later this year, and asked Rodney and Kim to return to the school for more Career Day events in the future. Well done, Rodney and Kim!
