Kendall Boyd, Louisville Water’s Employee and Labor Relations Manager, sent the photos on this page from the ceremony for the June 2023 Kentuckiana Builds graduating class. Louisville Water is a sponsor of this Louisville Urban League initiative, which equips people with the hands-on skills they need to be part of the area’s building and infrastructure boom, including such jobs as heavy equipment operator, electrician, carpenter, fiber optic installer, and welder.
“I am extremely proud that Louisville Water is a key sponsor and partner of this important initiative with the Louisville Urban League,” Boyd said. “I am so thrilled to have been able to participate in this initiative on behalf of Louisville Water, and many congratulations to the graduates of this program. Great job everyone!”
Kentuckiana Builds connects the graduates with local employers who are hiring. The Louisville Urban League administers the program in partnership with KentuckianaWorks and the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.
