Constructing Hope had our 9th graduation ceremony on March 21, 2012 at the Pacific Northwest Carpenters Institute. We had a very successful event with 14 graduates and more than 50 attending. Kevin Joeckel, Hoffman Structures Inc. President presented a keynote address. Past graduate Orenthal Jackson also shared his experience as a first-term apprentice with the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 290. Big congratulations to the two level-1 graduates, Jayme Bowen and Albert Goldsby.
