The Tampa MCAF Apprentice Program & chapter meeting “on the slab” was held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the CEMEX Block Plant in Tampa. The MCAF apprentices had a chance to showcase some of their masonry skills. Thank you to everyone who took the time on a Saturday to come out and support Florida's future generation of masons. Your continued support of this program is the cornerstone of our success. Immediately following the masonry expo, the MCAF gave a salute to their graduating apprentices along with a luncheon catered by Mission B-B-Q.
Congratulations to the following graduating apprentices:

I’m excited to lead the team at Besser in operational improvements and work closely with producers to create new and grow existing partnerships,” commented Ryan.
Ryan, his wife Melodi, and their son Boe reside in the Alpena area and, together, look forward to an exciting future at Besser.
