Mountwest Community and Technical College Partners with CJ Hughes to Offer Utility Construction Program

HUNTINGTON- A new career path is open for enrollment at Mountwest Community and
Technical College thanks to a collaboration with CJ Hughes Construction Company. The Utility
Construction Program is a new program that will offer students the opportunity to learn about the

field that is not just a job, but a career.” The bipartisan infrastructure bill is allotting billions of
dollars for West Virginia roads and bridges, broadband development, utility infrastructure repair
and replacement, water quality improvement, and transportation. “The work that needs to be
done with this money is work that we do every single day. We need enough qualified workers to
handle the workload, so that we can keep this work for our local businesses and employees. We
are elated to partner with Mountwest and keep these jobs close to home.”
Mountwest offers an array of programs that span numerous industries. The concept of a
partnership with a local business isn’t new to Mountwest; a maritime academy is offered through
Mountwest thanks to a collaboration with our local coast guard. “This is what we love to do,
create solutions for our community and our partners that will ultimately have a greater impact on
our region”, Dr. Joshua Baker, President of Mountwest comments. “State funding and grant
resources are what make this work, and we are fortunate to have these opportunities available to
us.”
