SC leaders unveil 53-foot, custom built trailer to help promote careers in the skilled trades

Governor Henry McMaster and other state leaders unveiled the “Be Pro, Be Proud SC” project, which includes a new 53-foot, double expandable 18-wheeler. The mobile workshop includes eight simulators, like truck driving, forklifts, and carpentry and welding machines, and it aims to grab high school students’ interest and help them realize a career in the trades is just as respectable as attending a four-year college.
