Arkansas Tech Students Get a Closer Look at a Union Consruction Career

More than 60 students from Arkansas Tech University now have a more comprehensive idea of the benefits surrounding a career as a union carpenter or millwright. Construction students from ATU toured the brand new Arkansas/Oklahoma Carpenters training facility in Russellville, AR. Staff from the program talked with the students, demonstrated equipment and answered any question they had.

"We thoroughly enjoyed being able to interact with the students and see their enthusiasm. We are looking forward to working with this next generation of carpenters and millwrights," said Bryan Spradley, Training Director of the Arkansas/Oklahoma Carpenters Apprenticeship and Training Trust Fund.

If you have a group that would like to see this new, state-of-the-art carpenter and millwright training facility, please contact Mr. Spradley at 479-967-4240 or
