Congressman Castro to speak at Career Signing Day for Construction Careers Academy

Who: Construction Careers Academy seniors, teachers, future employers, and Congressman Joaquin Castro

What: CCA Signing Day

When: Tuesday, May 29, 6:40 p.m.

Where: Northside Activity Center, 7001 Culebra Road (Loop 410/Culebra near Paul Taylor Field House and Gus Stadium)


Seniors at Northside ISD’s Construction Careers Academy will graduate with much more than a diploma. They have spent the last four years honing their construction skills and earning industry-recognized certifications. Now, the soon-to-be graduates are ready to use those skills in the workforce as electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and more.

Approximately a dozen students will celebrate “Signing Day” at the school’s annual Academy Awards. These students have secured jobs in the industry and some will use these jobs to help pay for college.

Future employers have been invited to attend, with organization caps and t-shirts, and stand behind these students as they sign a commitment to enter the construction industry.

Congressman Joaquin Castro will also speak to the group about the importance of developing a skilled workforce, especially here in San Antonio.
