Indianapolis Metropolitan High School Visits IEC!

“This is your toolbox,” James Meyer said as he pointed to his head. “And no one can take that from you. You can do anything. But you’ve got to put the work in. You’re entitled to nothing in this life, so you have to keep growing and learning. The only time you stop learning is when you die.”

 

Today we had the honor of hosting Indianapolis Met to discuss what apprenticeships are, what being an electrician is like, and the positive impact that the skilled trades have on our community, and our futures.

 

The students were a fantastic audience, engaged and interacting. They even got to take home their very own Wire Termination Twist-On Training Kit, courtesy of IDEAL Electrical and IEC of Greater Cincinnati.

 

We hope that they come and visit us again soon!

Of course, anyone over the age of forty knows that this is patently untrue.
