Michigan Tech at Michigan Construction Career Days

CTT Staffers Help Run and Present at Construction Career Days
Staff from the Center for Technology and Training (CTT), part of the Michigan Tech Transportation Institute, joined other construction industry professionals from across Michigan to coordinate the sixth annual Michigan Construction Career Days event in Howell last week. Construction Career Days attracted nearly 2000 middle and high school students and teachers from across Lower Michigan. The event is designed to show young people the wide variety of careers available in the construction industry—at all levels of education and experience.

Governor Rick Snyder toured the 515 acre site, where he met with students and teachers, and also commented on the event. “There are so many opportunities in construction,” Governor Snyder said. “It’s about showing young people this is an opportunity to get training, have a great career, and help rebuild Michigan and reinvent our state.”

Lynn Artman from the School of Technology and Charles Fobbs, an undergraduate student in the Construction Management program, participated as exhibitors for Michigan Tech.

CTT staff assisting in the organization and execution of the event included John Ryynanen, Maureen Anton, and Belle Wirtanen. Ryynanen serves on the Construction Career Days Advisory Committee.
