In April, the Moore Home Builders Association (MHBA) awarded seven $1,000 scholarships to students enrolled in Moore Norman Technology Center full-time construction trades programs. Scholarships went to four high school students and three adult students.
Scholarship awards went to:
Carpentry: Norman High School student Josh Seat and adult student Anthony Crossland.
Computer-Aided Design & Drafting: Southmoore High School student Desiree Johnson
Electrical Apprentice: Southmoore High School student Jacob Slover and adult student Bridey Jensen
Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration: Southmoore High School student Tony Rodriguez and adult student Cameron Foster.
MNTC Technical Careers Director Steve Ketchum thanked the Moore Homebuilders Association.
We're thankful to the MHBA for supporting our students year after year! The scholarship money will go a long way to help each student purchase tools and supplies necessary to advance their careers in the construction trades industry.
The scholarship money allows students to purchase tools and pay for costs covering tuition and books for continuing education.
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.
