CCDI Phoenix: Skye on 6th Tour
Our students from Phoenix Union Bioscience High School joined us for their first visit of the school year on the Skye On 6th project in downtown Phoenix this past week. We had 14 returning and 6 new students join the program who have the opportunity to tour the project each month and eat lunch with the team on site! A lot of construction has been underway since the students last visit so they were very excited to see the progress and get to visit the almost top level! Big shout out to Clayco’s project team on Skye for facilitating these visits each month: Theodore Lander, Mike Sieckhaus, Prasad Waghmare, Zac Carino, Ryan Abbott, Derek Parker and Christopher Schmidt.

Jobsite Tour: Skye on 6th
The students from Phoenix Union Bioscience High School enjoyed their January visit and lunch on-site with the team at the Skye on 6th project! Prior to their visit, they had the opportunity in their classroom to review and learn how to read the blueprints on the project. A tremendous amount of work has been completed since their last visit so the students had great questions and were excited to see the progress. A huge thank you to the Skye on 6th team for taking time out of your day to host the students EVERY month. They have gone above and beyond to make this a hands-on, real-world learning opportunity for these superstar students and without a doubt impacting the Phoenix community. Thank you!
