WA Patriot Proudly Sponsors Swing for a Soldier Golf Tournament

WA Patriot was a proud sponsor of the Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation’s 2017 Swing for a Soldier Golf Tournament held on July 10, 2017. The event was graciously supported by local and regional organizations and golfers who share in our passion to ensure all our returning veterans have the support they need to continue to serve outside of the military.  Combat related Post Traumatic Stress and Injuries are greatly impacting our veterans, and the foundation is partnering with proven programs to be part of the solution

Behind the Fence Construction: CAPE 2017

WA Patriot participated this year in the CAPE (Career and Pathway Expo) Program, which serves approximately 250 girls in 6th – 8th grades from Peninsula School District. The program is aimed at getting middle school girls excited about and involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). WA Patriot Project Manager Zerah Florance, along with Architect Jessica Archer, walked three groups of 8-10 girls through a WA Patriot project under construction in Gig Harbor where they were able to see a concrete stem wall, concrete placement, and rebar embeds. Zerah and Jessica explained to them about all the different professionals involved in a construction project and the large number of career paths you can take and be involved in with construction. They also touched on general materials, methods, and basics of construction plans. Many thanks to Zerah and Jessica for taking their personal time to help expose these young girls to STEM!
