SNOHOMISH, Wash. — In a move to celebrate high school seniors pursuing careers in the skilled trades, Lifetime Heating and Air Conditioning has awarded two Snohomish graduating seniors with a $2500 scholarship to pursue a career in the trades.
On May 30, 2019, two high school seniors were recognized by their school administrators, teachers, City of Snohomish Mayor John Kartak, family, and friends for making the decision to pursue a career in the skilled trades, said Dwight Miller, co-owner of Lifetime Heating and Air Conditioning. In a style similar to “National Signing Day” events for high school student athletes, seniors were applauded as they announced their career plans and received a scholarship for advanced technical training.
“We are thrilled to partner with Lifetime Heating and Air Conditioning on this first-ever scholarship program saluting high school seniors excited to start their career in the skilled trades,” said Debora Koenig, director, Career and Technical Education for Snohomish School District.
“We are committed to strengthening the skilled workforce in our market,” said Miller. “By empowering the next generation of workers to enter the trades, we can help close the skills gap, while presenting robust career opportunities for young workers who enjoy challenging work that offers stability and long-term benefits.”
Gensco has donated a Malco HVAC Starter Kit for each scholarship recipient, valued over $500 to assist in their new career endeavors.
