From Region 5, District 8:

Southwestern Illinois College honored 14 recent graduates from its summer Engineering Technician training program with a ceremony at the East St. Louis Community College Center on July 26. The graduation ceremony was an opportunity to recognize the 10 weeks of training required to graduate.

For 10 consecutive weekends, the trainees completed highway construction activities, which included CADD training and on-the-job work scenarios with district staff at the Illinois Department of Transportation in Collinsville. These new skills will put graduates in a much better position to secure jobs in the construction industry or start their own ventures.
