On Tuesday, August 15, 2017, Lantz Construction Superintendent Jeremie Southerly was one of three judges for the Rockingham County Fair’s 2017 AGC/MTC Construction Trade Skills Competition. Jeremie has volunteered in this capacity for the Carpentry event for the past five years.
For this annual event, Massanutten Technical Center students compete in 4-hour electrical, carpentry, HVAC and masonry skills challenges with each trade competition being held on a different night during Fair Week.
The Valley District of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) sponsors the contest, which is held in the AGCVA Career and Technical Education Pavilion (also called the AGC/MTC Pavilion).
The student competitors were tasked with making a bench this year and were judged on safety, accuracy/precision, ability to follow drawings, material usage, and overall appearance of end product and work zone. All benches made during the contest were donated to the Rockingham County Fair Association.
Thanks to Jeremie for volunteering his expertise and representing Lantz Construction Company once again!
