The afternoon of June 13th, 2019 will be one of those days that may echo for years to come. The first ever “Signing Day” took place at the Lord Fairfax Community College campus in Vint Hill. The room buzzed with excitement as eight graduating high school students from Fauquier and Prince William County signed letters of intent with four HCCA member firms. The first of its kind program included a nationally recognized curriculum and heavy equipment simulator training for graduating seniors. The success of this program had many in the audience beaming with excitement about this future path of education.
SW Rodgers is proud to be one of the inaugural companies that participated in hiring this years’ class of students. Not only are we proud to support the young adults graduating from our local communities, but we are extremely excited about the two individuals that choose SW Rodgers as their career path. Hunter Key and Bradley Tavener (pictured below) signed letters of intent with us and will begin their careers here in the coming days.
The success of this class of students is also attributable to their instructor. Josh Allen has been instructing the Heavy Operators Training Course at LFCC for the past couple years. Josh is a long-time employee of SWR and future leader of this company. Hunter and Brad are certainly better equipped to tackle the demands of the jobsite after training with Josh over the past semester. We look forward to seeing these two students grow on the jobsite and wish them much success on their new career paths. Welcome to the team!
