Carter Casperson (second from left) started working at Altmann Builders when he was a senior at Columbus Catholic High School through the Youth Apprenticeship Program. Upon graduation, Carter went to school at Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) and completed the Construction Trades Program. Carter is still employed by Altmann Builders.  

“When Carter started his Youth Apprenticeship with us he was eager to learn everyday. Carter is a hard worker, dedicated employee and always comes to work with a smile on his face. We were very fortunate that we were able to have the opportunity to work with Mrs. Hattamer and the Youth Apprenticeship Program and look forward to more students in the future. Carter has become part of the family.” - Altmann Builders (John, Rob & Mike Altmann)

Nick Herman (center) started working at Spencer Machine when he was a senior at Columbus Catholic High School through the Youth Apprenticeship Program. Upon graduation Nick went to school at Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) and recently graduated with a degree in Industrial Mechanics. Nick has been working at Spencer Machine while attending MSTC and will continue to work there.

“When Nick joined Spencer Machine we had no idea what an asset he would be to the shop. We are so thankful to the Youth Apprenticeship Program. Mrs. Hattamer set us up with an amazing, hard-working, and self-motivated student, and the flexibility of the process helped make this a successful endeavor. We look forward to more opportunities like this in the future. Watching Nick learn and grow through the years has been such a reward.” - Spencer Machine, Gary and Andrea Bauer
