Shelia Haworth with the Moore Home Builders Association said:
We're honored to help local students achieve their career goals. By investing in MNTC students’ futures, we can help ensure that qualified construction workers enter the local workforce. As current contractors and subcontractors in the Moore area reach retirement age, more qualified workers will be needed to fill their shoes. The opportunities are endless.
The MHBA promotes quality home building in the greater Moore area and provides support and educational opportunities to member builders and contractors. To learn more about the Moore HBA, visit moorehomebuilders.com.
