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.
SOUTH CAROLINA ADDRESSING SKILLS GAP
As the 3rd state to welcome the Be Pro Be Proud movement, South Carolina students will begin learning about skilled trades career opportunities this school year.
