Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a national, family-owned construction management and contracting company, participated in the 2022 Queen Creek Business Education Summit hosted by the Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce.
“Participating in the Queen Creek Business Education Summit allows us to connect with local leaders, businesses and students each year to shape future success in the community,” said Amara Boesch, regional marketing director for AP. “We prioritize building stronger communities where we live and work and sharing our expertise in this setting allows us to present new and expanding pathways for students entering the workforce. It also provides an opportunity to build relationships with local leaders and businesses.”
AP was joined by local businesses, fellow industry professionals, elected officials, educators and students to discuss better workforce readiness initiatives for the Queen Creek community. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and hear feedback on career technical education programs, opening their worlds to various career exploration pathways.
"The goals of the summit are to build long-lasting and meaningful relationships between the business community and the classrooms to ensure our students are successful after graduation, whether they are going to college or entering the workforce," said Chris Clark, president and CEO, Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce.
