In December, Doster Construction Company hosted seven students from Overton High School who are affiliated with the ACE Mentor Program of Nashville. The visit consisted of a safety and construction industry presentation, as well as a mock construction activity, where they used LEGOs to estimate, schedule and construct “Overton High School Tower.
Ed Smith, Nashville Vice President, said “We are proud that Doster is a sponsor of the ACE Mentor program, and excited that our Nashville employees are so involved as mentors to the students at Overton High School. This program provides an incredible connection to some very bright and motivated young people who are exploring Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE) as a career, at a time when our industry needs more talent and diversity. At the same time and just as important, it gives us an opportunity to give back to our Nashville community where Doster has worked for more than 30 years.”
The ACE Mentor Program of America, Inc. helps mentor high school students and inspires them to pursue careers in design and construction. Their mission is to engage, excite and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in architecture, engineering, and construction through mentoring and to support their continued advancement in the industry.
