We've got some exciting news for you all! Our Commercial Apprenticeship Instructor, LaKeal Morris (above left)
, and 2019 Commercial Apprenticeship graduate--and current Bergelectric
electrician--David S. Moore (above right)
are representing us on the national stage this weekend at the IDEAL National Championships at Walt Disney World.
Morris is on the panel of judges, while Moore is competing for the title of 'best electrician in North America'.
Morris--who is in his third year of judging this event--says that the event has gotten better each year, stating that "it is cool that a company like Ideal, a known contributor to this trade, could harness the competitive nature of all these electricians to culminate for one weekend at Walt Disney World. We race for lunch,
beer, and even pay checks at the end of the week just to be known as the fastest or even simply
'the best'. It's nice that I get to judge it."
Meanwhile, Moore is representing the state of California at the Championships for the third year in a row. His 2019 time of 0:50:47 seconds was the fastest in the state of California, and we wish him the
best of luck in replicating--or even beating--his own personal best this weekend.
We are proud of you both, LaKeal and David! Thank you to both of you for exemplifying what we--as well as our Member Contractors--already know: WECA and its Member Contractors produce California's finest electricians and low voltage technicians!
