MW Builders Helps Belton High School SkillsUSA Team

SkillsUSA improves the quality of America’s skilled workforce through a structured program of citizenship, leadership, employability, technical, and professional skills training. SkillsUSA enhances the lives and careers of students, instructors, and industry representatives as they strive to be champions at work.

SkillsUSA serves more than 335,000 students and instructors annually. This includes 19,500 instructors who join as professional members. Including alumni, SkillsUSA membership totals more than 395,000. SkillsUSA has served more than 12.5 million annual members cumulatively since 1965.

Safety manager, John Francis, and operations manager, Jason Oldham, provided their services to help the Belton HS SkillsUSA team. This is the fourth year that MW Builders has been associated with the Skills Construction class at Belton High School. John Francis and Jason Oldham were tasked by President Jason Evelyn to explore opportunities that would provide support and encouragement to this program. Craig Sullivan, instructor, reached out to MW Builders immediately to help find specific trade professionals that would enhance each craft in this inclusive program. MW Builders turned to well-known subs to bring enhanced training. Along with the outside help, MW Builders put together a team that volunteered their time and talent. Toby Gower came from a jobsite at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri on two separate occasions to share his expertise on steel stud framing. Other local trades have been more than eager to spend time and money to support this effort: RK Bass (electrical), DSI (drywall), Cooper and Bright (plumbing), Texas Premier Brick and Eddie Moore (masonry), RAM Mechanical (plumbing), and ASCO (rough terrain fork lift).

Another part of MW Builders' support has been spending time with the team in the evening practice sessions and providing meals in preparation for a long evening of practice.
