June 7, 2012 marked a special evening for 27 people who graduated from IEC of Greater Cincinnati’s four year apprenticeship program.  The dinner and awards banquet was held at the Crowne Plaza Cincinnati North hotel.  We are proud to announce that all graduates passed the Middletown Journeyman license exam and 92% passed the Kentucky Journeyman license exam.  Cash prizes and awards were given to those with perfect attendance, highest GPA and the big award, Apprentice of the Year.  Our Apprentice of the Year was presented with an engraved plaque, a 14 piece Klein Tool set, an Ideal Tight Site Meter and an all expense paid trip to the IEC National Convention in Fort Worth, Texas which will take place this October.

Congratulations to all of the graduates and those who won awards!
