“We Don’t Know”

Yes we know not the condition
of our relatives and friends
a sneeky peek at hear say
is where our knowledge ends.
 
I saw a friend the other day
I had not seen for a while
when I told him of my problems
all he did was smile.
 
Yes it seemed that in our time away
he encountered much of the same
the only thing different I do recall
was the doctors and hospital name.
 
You see the most have problems
as the days of life go on
so be careful before you start singing
that feel sorry for me song.
 
I’ve seen this more and more since then
so more cautious I try to be
yes the person who might look quite well
could be hurting more than me.
 
Now looks can be deceiving
so be careful what you might say
yet it seems to me it is quite safe
to part with “have a nice day.”

NCCER Careers and Construction Month

Careers and Construction Month, recognized in October, is a nationwide celebration that provides recognition of the career opportunities that exist in the construction industry. It is led by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and its Build Your Future initiative to increase public awareness and inspire the next generation of craft professionals.

With shortages of craft professionals across the country, now is the time to promote construction careers in every state. Recognizing October as Careers in Construction Month generates publicity for the construction industry and helps promote career opportunities to individuals who may not have otherwise considered construction as a career choice.

GCHS Career and Technical Education Department Trade and Industry classes and instructors recognized Careers and Construction Month with a series of activities during the week of October 26- November 2, 2018.

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 the Annual Careers and Construction Professional Development Meeting was held in the GCHS Eagles' Cafe. The event included business and industry partners from the Emporia –Greensville community, local city and county government officials, school division administration and the faculty of GCHS.  Highlights of the event were Proclamation Presentations by Takisha Carr, representative from the office of Delegate Roslyn Tyler, 75th District and Beverly Howell, representative from the office of Mayor Mary Person, City of the Emporia.  Recognitions were made by Tyee Mallory, Outreach Director from the office of United States Senator Tim Kaine. The speaker for the event was Mr. Jordan Gregory Doyle, Greensville County High School Class of 2010 alumni. He is a graduate of Norfolk State University with an associate degree in architectural drafting and Bachelor of Science degree in building and construction technology.

Mr. Doyle was a completer of the drafting program at Greensville County High School (GCHS). Dual enrollment credits earned at GCHS allowed enabled him to earn an associate degree at Norfolk State University (NSU) after 1 year.  He made the cover of the advertisement brochure for the building construction technology program for the University. Additionally, while attending NSU, Mr. Doyle was granted an opportunity to assist with the redesign of the Chrysler Hall (museum) in Norfolk, Virginia.  The remodeling project that he and his classmate completed as interns was estimated at approximately $6 million dollars. It was with this internship he was fortunate in having his name placed on a plaque on the museum walls at Chrysler Hall.  As a NSU student, he was also afforded opportunities to work on design projects for multiple business by performing completion jobs for blue prints, ramps, steps, doors, and windows throughout Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach.

After graduation in May 2014, Mr. Doyle obtained a job with Architectural Graphing Industries, in Virginia Beach, VA, where he was a designer and framer with the illumination of signage from top to bottom to include LED lighting. He was involved in the development of signs from start to finish:  start of a design, design approval, running the illumination lighting with quality assurance completion, loading of the sign being delivery and watching the sign depart for display at businesses. He designed signage for Hertz, Firestone, Mercedes, Lincoln, and Nissan.

Currently, Mr. Doyle is employed by Team Fishel, a contracting agency for Dominion Energy, as a distribution designer. He designs OH power lines to run underground to provide power to homes throughout Eastern Virginia.  This important work involves designing power lines, calculating loads and the voltage that is required to provide power to homes in order to transition from power lines on light poles above ground to power lines beneath the ground.

GCHS was excited and proud to celebrate Careers and Construction Month with one of their own, Mr. Jordan Doyle.
