Taylor Zepp, GHC Graduate 2014"I enrolled at Grays Harbor College to take business classes to prepare for starting my own construction company.  While looking through the class schedule I discovered that GHC has a Carpentry program!  

Carpentry was a great fit for me.  I learned an amazing amount of technical information and truly enjoyed the hands-on training. I had great support as a student and I was presented with several career opportunities before graduation.  In the end, I decided to hang my own shingle.  The GHC Carpentry program helped me to reach my long-standing goal.  Zepp Construction is now a reality!"
