Thanks to State Rep. Doc Anderson (R-Waco) for authoring HB 639 that is now law and will allow students in GWAMA's new Construction Academy to be eligible to have insurance on the job. That puts them on a faster career path to get certified in a career they love.

They'll also have a paid internship before they graduate, without thousands in debt!

Rep. Anderson, home builder Scott Bland, construction executive K. Paul Holt, and Waco ISD's Donna McKethan say the new program is "a generation changer" for families! 

The new Construction Sciences Program starts this fall at the Greater Waco Advanced Manufacturing Academy and is open to high school students across McLennan County.
