Springfield man represents LA at White House gathering

WASHINGTON, D.C.---A Springfield man was one of two Louisiana craft professionals chose to represent the construction industry during a Thursday White House event to celebrate America's workers with President Trump, Vice President Pence, and Ivanka Trump.

35-year-old Tim Gros, an ISC Constructors employee who lives in Springfield, shared with the President, Vice President and Ivanka Trump his craft training story and the importance of earn-while-learn education programs. The new dad and Patterson native juggled four, 16-hour days each week for the past two years to complete his education with ABC Pelican, and he now has more electrical and instrumentation credentials and a 24 percent increase in salary.

“‘Honored’ doesn’t even begin to describe the experience of sharing my story with the country,” Gros said. “My hope is that my story reveals the importance of earn-while-learn education programs and inspires other hard-working Louisianans to pursue a career in construction. By investing in myself and working hard, I was able to advance my career without taking time off from earning a pay check.”

Gros chose ABC Pelican’s craft training program to “fill in the gaps” and to deepen his understanding of the trades. “The education through ABC Pelican furthered my knowledge and strengthened my skill set,” he said. “The programs shaped my future by teaching me the fundamentals of my trade.”

“But for a moment,” is the phrase that inspired Gros while he earned his credentials because he knew they would help him take that next step in his career. “There were moments when I thought about giving up with a demanding job and intense craft training, but I didn’t,” Gros said. “Work hard and finish strong.”
