The Charleston Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) held its annual apprenticeship graduation and oyster roast at their Summerville, SC, headquarters facility on Nov. 21. The event had more than 200 attendees, including graduates, their sponsors and families, and supporting partners such as Atlantic Coast Electric Supply and CECA staff.

Butch Clift, manager of CECA’s apprenticeship program, said he was extremely pleased with the size of the graduating class and the enthusiastic attendance as well as participation from the electrical contractor community. There were 23 electrical apprenticeship program graduates and 27 Project Supervision course graduates in attendance to receive their achievement certificates. Each graduating student received numerous gifts from CECA, manufacturers like Klein Tools, and supporting distributors such as Atlantic Coast Electric Supply, which is also headquartered near CECA’s Summerville facility.

John Marshall, president and CEO of Atlantic Coast Electric Supply, said in the press release that these CECA programs supply the industry not only with immediate needs but also for future talent and growth. “We look forward to supporting the CECA organization and other trade organizations now and in the years ahead and we hope they will call on us whenever the opportunity for us to assist exists,” he said in the release.
