Jennings High School students visited the Icon Mechanical office and shop in Granite City, Illinois. Students visited many areas of the company, but the BIM modeling area and the fabrication shops were among the highlights. Students also got to see Terronn Millett, who just started working for Icon as a pre-apprentice pipe fitter with Local 562. Terronn was hired after attending the CCDI Annual Career Fair.

2nd Annual Golf Tournament

1 of 5
Our 2nd Annual Golf Tournament was a tremendous success! We had great weather and huge turnout. There were 120 golfers that participated in our tournament and more guests joined us afterward during our happy hour event. It was a great opportunity for our sponsors to meet with our CCDI scholars and to hear their stories. It was also powerful for our scholars to see just how many people came out to support them and the CCDI program.
