Training the Teachers Who’ll Inspire Future Workers

ICI joined several industry partners at Hamilton Heights High School (HHHS) recently for civil construction/heavy highway teacher training. ICI’s Manager of Talent Development Julia Polston spoke with teachers from multiple Indiana high schools about ICI and opportunities for their students in the highway, heavy and utility industry. HHHS has had much success with its Civil Engineering Certified State Earn and Learn (SEAL) program, and now other schools are implementing similar programs. Sharing lessons learned, HHHS hosted the teacher training which included a visit the HHHS Sandbox, a tour of an asphalt plant, experience with equipment simulators, introductions to industry partners and much more. By helping to establish a better educational infrastructure that points young kids in our direction, ICI is helping to build the workforce of tomorrow.
