FORGE Joined NCCER’s Careers in Construction Month Pledge, Selected Noxubee County CTC for Scholarship

FORGE, a non-profit organization committed to partnering with educators to cultivate skilled construction professionals, proudly participated in the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and Build Your Future (BYF) Careers in Construction Month campaign last October. By signing the pledge and engaging in classroom activities, FORGE was eligible for a $1,000 scholarship drawing designated for secondary craft training programs.

We are delighted to announce that FORGE was selected as the recipient of this scholarship and has chosen the construction program at the Noxubee County Career Technology Center (CTC) as the deserving beneficiary. Situated in Macon, MS, the Noxubee County CTC is recognized for its dedication to equipping students with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the construction industry.

Melinda Lowe, Executive Director at FORGE, expressed her enthusiasm about the opportunity to support the Noxubee County CTC, stating, “Investing in programs like those offered at the Noxubee County CTC empowers students to pursue rewarding careers in construction and shapes the future of the industry.”

The NCCER and BYF Careers in Construction Month initiative, celebrated annually in October, aims to raise awareness of the opportunities available in the construction sector while emphasizing the importance of skilled trades.

FORGE extends its gratitude to NCCER and BYF for their support and recognition, as well as to the Noxubee County CTC for their commitment to delivering high-quality construction education.
