NOVI, Mich., Aug. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BrassCraft Manufacturing today announced it is continuing to offer $1,500 scholarships to support the next generation of skilled tradesmen and women.  These funds help to offset costs for the plumbing apprentices enrolled in accredited four-or-five year training programs. 

"We are committed to promoting and investing in the future of the plumbing profession. To support deserving students interested in pursuing a career in our industry is very gratifying," said Jill Shippy, Marketing Specialist, BrassCraft Manufacturing.    

The company has been working with not only associations (like the PHCC Educational Foundation and its individual chapters and Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC)) but also with independent technical and trade schools supporting plumbing apprentices on the road to becoming journeyman plumbers.

"Making a difference one student at a time is our passion! And these scholarships reflect the importance and commitment BrassCraft Manufacturing has to helping students who might not otherwise be able to pursue their plumbing career," Shippy said.
