District Council 6 – Apprentice Graduation

On October 17, 2017, District Council 6 hosted its Apprentice Graduation Dinner at the DC 6 offices in Strongsville, Ohio. This year, DC 6 had a total of 23 graduates! Director of Training for the FTI-Ohio Region George Boots welcomed the friends and families of our newest journeyworkers to the ceremony. DC 6 BM/ST and FTI-OR Co-chairman Jim Sherwood, and General President’s Representative Charlie Meadows both gave inspiring speeches to the audience before the presentation of diplomas.
