On June 13 Boilermaker apprentices from the Southeast Area Joint Apprenticeship Committee (SAJAC) Program marched in a Flag Day parade in Jacksonville, Fla. Joined by SAJAC instructors, they represented Florida Locals 199 (Jacksonville) and 433 (Tampa), South Carolina Local 687 (Charleston Heights), and Tennessee Local 263 (Memphis).

“The first-year apprenticeship class represented their trade with dignity and pride,” reports SAJAC instructor and L-263 member Rodney Evans. Fifty apprentices and four instructors participated in the event, making them one of the largest groups in the parade.
