Astra participates in Cherokee County Schools Externship

Today, our VP of Operations, Allen Eison, is participating in the 2018 Externship Program for middle and high school counselors from the Cherokee County GA School District. Astra is a sponsor of the program to get the district to embrace the construction industry by educating counselors and educators on the opportunities available to students, specifically in skilled labor and management.

Funded by the State, the three-day educational program showcases various projects in each partners’ respective industries. Allen is covering our work for the Woodstock, Georgia & City of Woodstock – City Hall on the expansion of Woodstock City Park, which was completed last summer. Other partners and sponsors include R&D Mechanical, the City of Woodstock, Cherokee Office of Economic Development, Cherokee Chamber of Commerce, CEFGA, Arrow_Exterminators, Batson Cook, Roytec Industries, Primus Builders, Inc., and Universal Alloy Corporation.
