WECA Apprenticeship Outreach Team Hosts Events for Sacramento-Area High Schoolers at WECA's CA HQ

Friday, May 19, 2023

The WECA Apprenticeship Outreach team recently hosted some fun and informational half-day events for Sacramento-area high school students at our California headquarters in Rancho Cordova.

Students heard personal anecdotes about apprenticeship from fourth-year Commercial Electrical Apprentice Skylar Cloninger and took part in hands-on labs facilitated by instructor Jimmie Slemp in which they got to learn directly from a WECA apprentice.

Ian Vander Linden of WECA Member Contractor K S Telecom, who also serves on WECA's Board of Directors, additionally shared insights with the students during the event.

It was great to inspire them to pursue careers in the electrical and low voltage industries, and we can't wait to see them in our classrooms and labs!
