  • This is a great move for Salida High School. As contractors, I think we all struggle with finding qualified help in almost all of the trades. This knowledge and some basic business sense could easily put some of these kids on the road to one day owning their own business. And while the work is sometimes physically demanding, the pay is quite a bit higher than many of the service jobs in our county.

    I hope this program is a rousing success!
