Home / School News / Farmer Constructions Apprenticeship Sponsorship


Hats off to Seth Calder who has been selected as the recipient of the Farmer Construction Apprenticeship Sponsorship. This scholarship is awarded to the top carpentry student in the TASK program, and I am happy to report that Seth is this school year’s recipient.  Seth will have his schooling paid for as he pursues his Red Seal in carpentry.

Seth showed an aptitude for carpentry at the outset of the program, but it was his continued participation that set him apart.  He always found a way to contribute to class projects and maintained a positive attitude while doing so. 

Seth spent his work experience with Farmer Construction and he received very positive feedback from his supervisor.  He was hired by the company following his work experience.  I visited Seth early in early June, and he was happy to report that the time had come to trade in his green ‘new worker’ hard hat for the yellow hat of a seasoned veteran. Way to go Seth!

This award is one more step towards Seth becoming a ticketed carpenter.

A big thank you to Farmer Construction and congratulations Seth!
