The Good Stuff, Vol. 28

Welcome to “The Good Stuff”, where we highlight positive news and ways that employees of NAED-member companies go above and beyond to give back to their communities! If you have some “Good Stuff” that you would like to share with tED magazine, find out how below.

In this issue, we look at City Electric Supply as it celebrates Career and Technical Education Month®

DALLAS, Texas — The Association for Career & Technical Education® celebrates CTE students and their achievements through a public awareness campaign — Career and Technical Education Month® — every February. This year, the campaign is sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders, and City Electric Supply (CES) is happy to support the campaign by taking a look back at some of the ways CES employees have supported local trade school students in the past.

CES Branches Team Up to Support IECRM Students
Independent Electrical Contractors Rocky Mountain (IECRM) is a chapter of a national trade association and apprenticeship school for electricians, and they recently returned to in-person classes for the first time in a year. To celebrate, they held a big event where electrical apprentice students could pick up their books as well as meet vendors and distributors in the industry. CES, a long-time partner of IECRM, was thrilled to play a part.

“The expo is great because we get to talk to students, and they get to talk to us,” added CES District Manager Randall “Randy” Birely. “It’s important for electrical students to start building these relationships before they officially move into the industry.”

And the event was a success. Over the four days of the event, around 300 electrical students showed up to pick up books, meet with vendors, talk to distributors, grab swag, and network over great food.

 

CES Cool Springs Lends a Hand to Achieve Trade School
CES District Manager Mike Mosketti and CES Cool Springs have been working together to help Achieve Trade School Director Bob Shain train the next generation of electricians.

“CES Cool Springs been a huge component of our program — providing program materials, ordering things we need that they don’t have on hand, delivering items at the drop of a hat, and being a constant resource for the program,” said Shain. “They even put up flyers in their lobby and have been available for potential job placement opportunities for our students.”

Mosketti couldn’t be prouder to support Shain’s mission, which started in 2017 with a dream of creating a hands-on learning experience for anyone interested in pursuing a skilled trade.

“We are so appreciative of their dedication to serving our students and aiding us in providing them with the knowledge and practices for their careers,” said Shain.
