Edwardson to Assume Statewide & Southeast Positions
November 23, 2011
Edwardson was also elected President of the State of Alaska Homebuilders Association and was named to a two year term on the Southeast Conference Board of Directors. When asked how he would balance his busy schedule of meetings he said, “I have balanced for many years my training efforts and various board meetings with running a successful general contracting company. By prioritizing what’s on the agenda for the day it's simple. First address that issue and move on to the next. It’s really not any different than many of us do each day in a business that we love. Construction and construction training is what I love to do so anything that promotes those efforts is really just part of my job”.
Debbie Patton, KIC General Manager, noted “These appointments are just another example of the positive work KIC is doing for its members and the community which highlights the continued support at the State level ensuring success of the Southern Southeast Alaska Technical Education Center”.
Starting in 1999 Ketchikan Indian Community established a training component to their workforce program. The program has evolved into a deeper realization that a responsibility exists not only to the members of KIC, but to the community and region.
Completion of the Southern Southeast Alaska Technical Education Center (SSEATeC), located at 615 Stedman Street in Ketchikan earlier this year, has brought a regional job training facility from which all Southern Southeast residents can benefit. From unemployed Alaskans looking for jobs to existing workers wanting to upgrade their skills in a changing work environment SSEATeC will be offering a variety of training courses ranging from culinary arts and shipyard career exploration to construction techniques and computer training. As the job market and economic conditions change so will SSEATeC’s class offerings.
