Sherman, Texas — The Rosendin Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated to positively impact communities, build and empower people and inspire innovation, recently hosted a free construction day camp for middle school students in the Sherman, Texas region. TRF Camp Build, which took place on Saturday, May 6, 2023, was designed to inspire and empower students to discover the joy of building with their hands and attain a new perspective on the building industry.
“We were satisfied with the turnout for TRF Camp Build, as this marked our first camp launch,” said Jolsna Thomas, President of The Rosendin Foundation. “It was inspiring to see how engaged the kids were, eagerly absorbing information and participating in the activities. We are genuinely proud to help inspire the next generation with empowering options for fulfilling and life-changing career paths.”
Held at the headquarters of Modular Power Solutions, a design and manufacturing facility located at 3007 Fallon Drive in Sherman, the free co-ed day camp for current 6th-8th graders provided hands-on building experience and equipped students with the necessary skills to continue building in the future. Participants learned essential skills such as using power tools safely, building a project, and exploring potential career paths in the growing industrialized construction industry under the guidance of skilled professionals.
“I had so much fun at camp! I’ve never used power tools before, but now I can build things,” said Keith Godfrey, a camper who participated in TRF Camp Build. “It’s amazing what we can create with our hands, and I can’t wait to see what else I can do in the future.”
TRF Camp Build offered students a safe environment to explore different career paths in industrialized construction and gain practical learning experience. The nonprofit sponsored this event, and four others nationwide, thanks to generous support from sponsors and in-kind donors, including Diamond-level sponsorship from sister companies Rosendin and MPS, Silver-level sponsors Cadence McShane Construction and Electrical Reliability Services, and Bronze-level sponsors BURNDY and MP Husky. In-kind donors included Milwaukee Tools, Stanley Black and Decker, Border States, and Graybar.
