The Home Builders Association of Lincoln (HBAL) hosted its 2022 Construction Career Day at Haymarket Park on April 21. Continuing education is important, even if it’s not in a classroom. Local construction companies took hands-on training to another level when they allowed area high-school students to experience operating a back-hoe, hammering a nail, using power tools, smoothing out concrete and more! Thanks to Jereme Montgomery (Stephens & Smith Construction) for organizing this successful event which hosted over 180 students from 8 schools!

HBAL is continually working on ways to connect with local youth and share the endless possibilities a career in residential construction provides. If you are interested in helping with this effort, you are encouraged to reach out to an HBAL staff or board member.
