Barron Heating AC Electrical & Plumbing is offering two $5,000 scholarships to Bellingham Technical College
The outlook for people seeking family-wage jobs in the building trades became even better this month as Barron Heating AC Electrical & Plumbing is offering two $5,000 scholarships to Bellingham Technical College.
“Demand is high now for plumbers, electricians and HVAC technicians,” said Brad Barron, Chief Operating Officer for the company. “For every five people in these jobs retiring, only one is entering the building trades. As we come into a new year, it’s time to change the definition of ‘success’ and how to achieve it.”
The Dan L. Barron Trades Scholarship, named after the company founder, aims to provide opportunities to individuals looking to enter the HVAC, electrical or plumbing trades and begin a successful career journey for themselves and their families. Barron will be providing two $5,000 scholarships to Bellingham Technical College. There is no obligation to future employment with Barron to receive these scholarships.
This year, Barron Heating AC Electrical & Plumbing celebrates its 50th anniversary, and reflects on the late Dan Barron’s goal to provide the community with quality service while supporting his employees with exceptional careers. To carry on his legacy, Barron is on a mission to prove that a career in the skilled trades is a rewarding one.
