“I grew up watching and experiencing the success my father has had being a carpenter. I realized early on that it was a path for me and in 2004 I joined the apprenticeship. Knowing that throughout the whole apprenticeship I would earn good wages, have health insurance, and get started on my retirement. Now I am a Superintendent for Neumann Brothers Inc. running multi-million dollar jobs and have a whole career ahead of me!”
