What’s New

A Day in the Life

Think back to the summer after your Senior year in High School. Did you have drive and focus? Were you looking ahead to your first year of college… and even farther to your career after school? Today, we were proud to host a group of fantastic High School graduates (or should I say COLLEGE FRESHMEN?) who are thinking of their futures.

The 2010 recipients of the DLA Scholarship joined us today for a job shadow. The morning started with an informal Q & A session. DLA staff took turns telling the students about their job and what they do in a given day. The group talked to the CEO, some Project Managers, some of the production staff and marketing. Discussion ranged from different aspects of the profession to what to expect in different college architecture programs. Next we visited Ridgewood High School, where Partner-In-Charge Carrie Matlock and Job Captain Matt Stoub led the tour of the Band Room Addition, currently under construction. Ridgewood’s Business Manager Cheryl Flinn and Henry Bros. Job Superintendent Bob Hartwig came along to share their perspective, as well.
