CCDI awarded nine 2019 Build Our Future Scholarships to our most deserving CCDI students. We want to thank our partnering school districts and colleges, mentors, and subcontracting partners who continue to support the CCDI program. This would not be possible without each and everyone of you. We look forward to the next chapter!
CCDI took a field trip to tour Tarlton’s Northwest Healthcare Siteman Cancer Center project. The students began the day with presentations from BJC, Local 562, and from Tarlton’s Superintendent on the project, Mr. James Tillman.They then walked around the jobsite and learned about the most important part of the project, the radiation room. CCDI rounded out the day back in the educational trailer to learn CPR and play interactive construction simulation games. Thank you Tarlton for hosting a CCDI Saturday Academy!
CCDI Mentor and Mentee Dan Lester and Steven Graves attended Missouri Western’s 2019 Awards Banquet honoring student excellence within their Engineering Technology Program.
CCDI wants to send a big thank you to everyone who participated in our hiring fair! We appreciate everyone for taking the time help our CCDI students prepare to take their next steps into the construction field. We have some really incredible candidates this year. A special thank you to Mr. Patrick Hanneken, Mr. Byron Lane, Mr. Casey Hayes of Jennings Senior High & all the Career Technical Education (CTE) teachers at North Technical High School for the dedication they have put into this group over the past two years. We’d also like to thank all the new contractors and subcontractors that joined us this year, especially Tarlton Corporation & Keeley Companies. It takes a village to make a difference!
CCDI students took to the road this past Saturday for a visit to L. Keeley Construction. The theme of the February Academy session was Adaptability.

Keeley and ADB for future endeavors including our upcoming Career Fair on March 7th!
