Other participating organizations included the Regional Outreach Council of MSU, West Kentucky Community and Technical College, the Paducah Area Construction Advancement Foundation, McKeel Equipment Company, Pinnacle Inc., Jim Smith Contracting Company, and a number of other vendors. “We’re trying to connect the dots between the [high school] students and the construction industry,” Nelson explained.
