You probably already know that many construction workers are well-educated via apprenticeship programs that provide specialized training and experience. However, that education is only as good as the instructors! James CRAFT & Son is fortunate to have 2 very talented instructors on our team.

Jerry Brown, one of our Sheet Metal Mechanics, was recently honored by the Keystone Chapter of ABC as the 2013-2014 Instructor of the Year. He’s now in competition with Drew Doxzon, who has received the award twice. It’s one thing to be a great Sheet Metal Mechanic or Electrician, but it’s even better to be able to share those skills and knowledge with others.



Jerry started at CRAFT at the age of 15 as a helper/laborer in the shops and warehouse. He graduated from the ABC Apprenticeship Program in 2010, and even won a Bronze medal in sheet metal at the 2010 National Craft Competition. Jerry joined ABC Keystone as an instructor in 2011. He is highly regarded by ABC staff and students, and we’re proud to have him.

Congratulations, Jerry!
