Jones Services in Goshen Supports CTE HVAC/Plumbing Students

Image Unavailable

CTE students have traditionally benefited from the support of local business and industry in a myriad of ways. Recently, Jones Services, located at 2099 Rt. 17A in Goshen, NY (jonesservices.com) contributed to three talented HVAC/Plumbing students' upcoming trip to the New York State SkillsUSA competition to be held in April in Syracuse.  Second year students Michael Jaman (Marlboro) will compete in NYS Hydronic Heating; Thomas Fasano (Washingtonville) in NYS Plumbing; and Darryl French (Port Jervis) in NYS Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration.  These students are in HVAC/Plumbing instructor Tim Lennon's class. 

Jones Services is not only contributing to the young mens' participation in the SkillsUSA competition, but has also provided them with an opportunity to spend time on the job going on "ride alongs" with technicians to get a real-world understanding of what they will be looking forward to in their chosen profession.
