Seven masonry students at Southern Vance High School have earned two national certifications that make them eligible for employment upon their graduation.
Ben Arrington is the students’ masonry teacher at Southern Vance.
All of the students met the standards required for certification in both the Core Curriculum and Green Environment areas through the National Center for Construction Education Research (NCCER).
