April's Apprentice of the Month is Jeffrey Kent.  Jeff is a 4th year apprentice that has been working with Anderson Electric since June of 2018.  Because Anderson is smaller shop, you may not have run into Jeff, but everyone that does, has something positive to say about him.  I get a lot of calls from journeypersons who worked for Anderson at one point or another just to compliment his skills and demeanor.  Keep up the great work, Jeff!

Congratulations to Macpherson Eghianruwa Jr., our Apprentice of the Month for March 2021!

Macpherson, or Mac, is currently a fifth-year apprentice in our program.  Mac came from Norwich Tech, class of 2015, and was highly regarded by his instructor.  His instructors report he is a solid student and he has a great work ethic.  I get the pleasure of seeing him a lot as he is always early for class!  If you see Mac around, congratulate him onhis great performance.
