A former community college instructor, I am aware there are students whose aptitudes are more suited to the mental and physical dexterity of handiwork — be it in construction, electrical or mechanical engineering, plumbing or welding, among other fields of manual labor — than the compulsory curricula of a traditional college education. For high school students whose talents lie in such technical work, the Humboldt County Office of Education — in coordination with College of the Redwoods, the Workforce Development Board of Humboldt County and industry partners — is offering high school upperclassmen its Trades Academy as a technical education pipeline into a career in the trades. “What we’re doing is bringing in local industry into the classrooms,” said Jack Sheppard, academy coordinator and trades liaison for the office of education. Sheppard has taken the classroom on the road with him, literally. He travels to schools in a trailer, or “mobile lab” as he calls it, so that high school juniors and seniors in schools without technical education programs can do hands-on lab activities and get “exposed to a huge variety of (career) options that are available in the county.” These options include concrete and masonry, drafting and architecture, energy and electrical, wood framing, HVAC, metal, project management, truck driving, and water and plumbing available through an extensive list of industry partners. One of the primary aims of the program, according to the office of education’s Career Technical Education counselor and coordinating teacher, Susi Huschle, is helping students in high schools to learn about trade programs available at CR. “The purpose is really economic development,” Huschle said, noting the Trades Academy is an Education at Work initiative oriented towards raising awareness about local opportunities. “The main thing is that there’s a huge shortage of workers and not enough knowledge of what’s out there and how to get connected. And that’s where the idea came to be,” said Huschle. Sheppard, who taught auto and metal shop for the Northern Humboldt High School District for 16 years, feels the need to promote trades is essential to building the county’s workforce. “A lot of employers would like to grow, but there’s not enough applicants,” he said. “So the idea is to get the word out and say there’s all of these options out there for you.” To jump-start the program, currently in its pilot year, the office of education, CR, and the workforce development board interviewed local businesses, students, parents, teachers, administrators and counselors to understand better what the county’s needs are in terms of technical education and from there coordinated a steering committee comprised of local employers in the trades. Thus was launched the Trades Academy with Sheppard at the helm. #gallery-2344941-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2344941-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2344941-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2344941-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ Humboldt County Office of Education’s Regional Trades Education Liaison Jack Sheppard, standing on the trailer ramp of his “mobile lab,” explains to members of the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce the educational opportunities available to local students at a chamber meeting in December.

I am thrilled to have industry partners involved in education. We see more preparedness when industry partners are involved in the education process. This program shows that.” The Arcata-based McCullough Construction, Inc., one of the academy’s industry partners, is enthusiastic about the program. “Working with our youth and new employees in the area of apprenticeship training is one of my passions and something my husband has been doing for the past 30 years in our company,” said Dena McCullough, vice president of McCullough Construction and president of McCullough Construction and Associates, in an email to the Times-Standard. “Working with the trades academy is an opportunity to share what we love with students and inspire them to pursue a career in the trades as it is a career that is rewarding and provides a great income.” McCullough said the partnership, which allows students to visit companies and talk with owners about the crafts involved in the business, puts them in touch with estimators, project managers, office support staff, laborers, mechanics, equipment operators, carpenters, welders and GPS technicians at McCullough Construction. “When the students make the connection to business and learn what types of careers are involved, we talk about their talents and gifts and why or why not our industry might or might not be a good fit for them,” she said. “If a student who visits our company wants to be hired, they would apply just like any other person. If they are hired there is a period of training.” McCullough added that her husband, Macky McCullough, who has been training apprentices for the past 30 years in the company, “says we have the best apprenticeship training around because from the time you are hired you have that on-the job training from journeyman operators. You can learn the craft of a laborer (and) an operator on the same job. Because we are a non-union contractor, our personnel can learn all crafts on the job and become very versatile.” Students involved in technical education from across the county will have a chance to display their hard work at the upcoming Gary Roberts Industrial Technology Showcase of Excellence on Monday, May 20, at the Sequoia Conference Center in Eureka. The showcase also affords them a chance to undergo the interview process with industry and CR partners regarding the school projects they worked on as well as their hopes for the future, and any graduating seniors who have found work are celebrated. For more information on the showcase, visit: https://hcoe.org/it-showcase/. For more information on the Trades Academy, go to https://hcoe.org/trades-academy/. Anyone interested in offering financial contributions to the Trades Academy can contact Huschle at 707-601-4307 or shuschle@HCOE.org. Rob Peach can be reached at 707-441-0503.
