Showing her construction skills, Sister Leah Peters from Manitoba placed third for Carpentry in the UBC Canadian National Apprenticeship Competition that was held in British Columbia. This was a two-day event which required writing a theory exam, illustrating with a leveling instrument, and building the project. These pictures highlight Leah’s progress and precision.
But this is not Leah’s first win. In June 2018, she won a building contest hosted by the Carpentry Trade Improvement Trust Fund (CTITF). In this contest, Leah competed against 3 other Local 343 members who had similar qualifications. CLICK HERE to see what she built.
Leah’s success in both contests is a testament to her hard work and determination. A member of Local 343 since 2017, Leah recently graduated from her Apprenticeship and successfully passed the Inter-Provincial Red Seal Exam; obtaining her status as a Certified Carpenter. Leah’s love for the trades has evolved while working alongside two important mentors; her father from the start and Brian Doll for five years.
Leah is excited about her future and looks forward to continued success in the trades.
