Southern Millwrights Help Women in Construction Program

Thanks to a grant and gift package presented recently, the Moore Community House Women in Construction Program in Biloxi, Mississippi, will be able to improve its training program and assist 90 more women in gaining credentials that could help them secure high-paying jobs in the Gulf Coast region.†
A scholarship tool set given to Michelle Thornton, a recent graduate of the Women in Construction Programís eight-week course, will aid in launching her career.

The Southern States Millwright Regional Council, the Southeastern Construction Owners & Associates Roundtable, and DEWALT sponsored the grant and gifts. SCOAR provided the $4,500 grant, the SSMRC funded the scholarship tool set worth more than $1,000, and DEWALT donated approximately $1,100 worth of tools on the Women in Construction Programís wish list.
