Construction company hosts signing day for new apprentice

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) — Miron Construction Co., Inc hosted a signing day on Tuesday to celebrate one of its newest apprentices.

Class of 2022 graduate Zach Long had his signing day at West Salem High School to celebrate Long becoming a carpentry union apprentice at Miron.

“A person signing for a sports scholarship is just as important as someone signing an apprentice scholarship,” said Rick Seeley, general superintendent of Miron Construction. “The apprenticeship is starting the young man’s career path just as someone signing a sports scholarship is starting their career path in the sports industry.”

Long is currently working on Westby High School/Middle School projects. Organizers say apprenticeship signing days like Zach’s prove to be an important first step in a new career.
