18 Students Graduate from KentuckianaBuilds


Kentuckiana Builds is a partnership between the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet, KentuckianaWorks and the Louisville Urban League that helps Louisville residents learn new skills and become more employable in the building industry.

Three BIA members regularly sit on the Kentuckiana Builds Advisory Board including Kevin Cunningham, Cunningham Door & Window, Dan Long, Louisville Paving & Construction and Steve McCarty, Kelley Construction, as well as BIA staff member Alex Martindale. Collectively, they guide the six-week program in an effort to make students more employable upon their graduation.

Congratulations to the graduating students from Kentuckiana Builds, and thank you to the employers who came to congratulate and hire them! Calhoun Construction, Kelley Construction and East & Westbrook were all in attendance to help these individuals restart their lives in the dynamic and growing building industry!
