Oldcastle Architectural is helping the future of masonry.
The company has donated $10,000 to Skills USA, providing the non-profit training organization’s national masonry program with critical funding for its education efforts and competitions that help students hone their masonry techniques.
The money came from a challenge issued to attendees at World of Concrete.
“We pledged to donate money for each brick show attendees installed onto a panel of EnduraMax High Performance Wall System at our demonstration area,” says Ken O’Neill, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Oldcastle Architectural. “With the overwhelming response, we were able to meet our $10,000 goal before the show’s end.”
Oldcastle’s $10,000 donation will support the training of of high school and post-secondary college students.
At World of Concrete, Skills USA masonry students were onsite at Oldcastle’s booth for hands-on learning about today’s masonry solutions and to share experiences with professional masons attending the trade show. Students also helped the product experts in the booth by preparing the materials and assisting during some of the product demonstrations.
