PA Coat of Arms

Quehanna Boot Camp Building Trades Teacher McCullough was contacted recently by reentrant Brian, who was one of McCullough's most recent masonry graduates. Brian completed the NCCER Masonry Level 1 program at the Boot Camp, which he finished during the early stages of COVID-19 with small group cohort instruction.

Brian said he tried a temp agency when he was first released and was only able to find factory work at low wages. He contacted a masonry contractor and said at first nothing was available (somewhat due to the pandemic). He contacted them again later and once he advised them he completed a Masonry Level 1 program at the Quehanna Boot Camp, he was instantly put through to set up for an interview.

He was proud to say that effective June 15, he started work with a masonry contractor making $17 an hour with health insurance, retirement and paid time off.

Brian wanted to thank the facility for all the staff has done and in giving him the opportunity to complete the Masonry Level 1 program.
