SL_brickSix St. Louis Job Corps Center Bricklayer students went competed against each other for the approval of several local brick companies.

The students performed in front of several brick contractors and material manufactures at the Mason Contractors Association, including John Smith Masonry, Lampkin Masonry, Midwest Brick and Block and Irwin Products. Brick Instructor Otis Peebles set up the competition to show off the skills of his students. He wanted his students to be ready to compete at any time for the premier opportunities. Once given the task requirements, the students went into action, with representatives from companies watching every move.

Mr. Peebles’ plans to hold this completion every spring and summer to give his students a chance to shine and preform brick by brick.
