Western Technical College and various local employers hosted a Construction and Apprenticeships Career Fair on Thursday, Feb. 14 at the Lunda Center.

Twenty employers, including JF Brennan, Tradesmen International, and Mathy Construction, were on hand to speak with students about construction and apprenticeship opportunities.
