Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Iron Worker's Message to Hospital Patient Warms Hearts


Frick Hospital beam_20170217152748052_7340732_ver1.0_640_360

 - The window of 87-year-old Gloria Porter's room at Frick Hospital in Mount Pleasant faces a construction site, and apparently she likes to watch the work.

While she probably thought no one would notice, one of the workers from Century Steel did notice the woman at the window on Thursday, and decided to send her a message.

Jeff Reich, who is an iron worker, wrote “Get Well” in chalk on one of the beams.

When Porter saw it, she responded with a message of her own, reminding him and the other workers to “Stay Safe.”

Excela Health, which owns the hospital, shared photos of both messages on Facebook, where they have collected nearly 2,000 likes and have been shared hundreds of times.

As one of the comments pointed out, it is especially touching because Friday is National Random Act of Kindness Day, which is celebrated by individuals, groups and organizations.
