Woodward Career Technical High School seniors Jerome Dennis and Jordan Robinson are working their way toward thriving careers in construction management. Over the last year, they’ve held work-study positions with Messer Construction — Woodward’s partner-in-education fort the last nine years — getting hands-on experience building some of the latest major projects in Cincinnati.
Jerome worked for four months on the new City Gospel Mission homeless shelter, while Jordan worked on redeveloping Xavier University’s Alter Hall. When both projects were completed, the pair was asked to help build the new Mercy Health headquarters in Bond Hill. Ti’Jay Jones, a 2015 Woodward graduate, joined them on the project.
Jerome and Jordan are doing exceptionally well in their academic classes, and have mastered the skill of balancing their part-time work-study position with classwork and extracurricular activities. They both plan to pursue careers in construction management and are researching colleges and universities with high-quality programs.
We wish them well.
