Associated Builders & Contractors Inc. Keystone Chapter (ABC Keystone) has applauded the graduates of the 2003 ABC Keystone construction apprenticeship program.

“ABC Keystone is proud of our graduates and the journey they have completed to become educated and experience members of the construction industry,” said David Wenrich, chairman of the Keystone Chapter. “ABC believes in the value of an educated, well-trained work force, and congratulates these graduates for their hard work and dedication to the construction industry, and [in the value of] the employers for helping them become valuable contributors in our efforts to build our communities with quality, safely, on time and within budget.”

ABC Keystone Chapter graduation was at the Harrisburg-Hershey Marriott in Harrisburg, PA. The Honorable Stephen M. Schmerin, Pennsylvania’s Secretary of the Department of Labor & Industry, was the keynote speaker for this program.
