Blakeslee Hosts ACE High School Program
Blakeslee Prestress Inc. in Branford, Connecticut, recently hosted local high-school students who participate in a school program that exposes them to various professions and activities within the construction industry.
The ACE (Architecture-Construction-Engineering) Mentor program, founded nationwide in 1994, coordinates programs for high-school students interested in construction fields. It teams them with mentors who are professionals in those industries to provide presentations and tours. The New Haven Chapter consists of students from 17 area high schools who are taking courses in engineering or drafting or have summer construction experience.
