One of our own NWiR members has stepped forward to replicate the Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls powered by the CSI Foundation, with a new location in Northeast Ohio. Shelly Higgins of NWiR and S-5 Metals is spearheading the project which involves many moving parts and pieces and NWiR is a proud sponsor of the camp. The camp will be held in Northeast Ohio using Mahoning County Career & Technical Center (MCCTC) as a base and will run from June 27 – July 1. She is joined by many other NWiR members from around the country. The camp has received most of the materials from the very generous manufacturers and suppliers in the construction industry. There are still some things needed such as lumber and flooring. If you would like to be a part of the experience, maybe you would be interested in building mock roofs for the various roof installations? Would you like to help precut and stage materials? Would you like to help instruct and mentor the campers? A cleanup crew is needed to tear it all down after the camp is complete. There are many ways to get involved, contact Shelly at
