CEFGA SkillsUSA State Championships, Georgia
Currently there is a national shortage of skilled labor within the construction industry. This effects our company every day on all of our many projects across the country and our ability to deliver the highest quality homes to our tenants. MCRT Southeast Construction is not idly sitting and accepting what the skeptics say about the future of construction as a career. Represented by Modera Vinings and Modera Sandy Springs Superintendents Keith Taylor and Ronnie Bixler, Mill Creek participated as judges for the CEFGA SkillsUSA State Championships competition. Keith and Ronnie, both skilled carpenters in their own right, bring over fifty years of construction experience to the table. The SkillsUSA State Championships is a competition that invites students to showcase their skills in a number of construction-related disciplines ranging from carpentry to electrical to machine operation. This event, combined with the Career Expo drew a record 7,500+ attendees this year.
