MSD was one of approximately 60 exhibitors at the 12th annual Kentucky Construction Career Day, sponsored by the Kentucky Construction Career Choice Council on September 20 and 21, 2016. Troy Smith organized MSD’s participation in this event.

We create excitement about MSD job opportunities through hands-on experiences, including a timed sewer pipe-cutting contest, confined entry experience, operating an excavator and operating MSD’s underground camera.”
