Barrett NYN - Annual JLI Construction Day

This year, New York North’s own Kevin Culbertson (Watertown area Sales) participated in the Jefferson Leadership Institute (JLI) sponsored by Barrett NYN.

Each year, employers in the area sponsor employees to attend the JLI class that immerses them in the community issues throughout the year. This curriculum enables participants to develop their leadership capabilities, build strong relationships, and encourages involvement in generating positive change in the community.

The curriculum participates in discussions pertaining to education, healthcare, media and telecommunications, government, tourism, non-profit organizations, agriculture, economic development and the significance of Fort Drum in the northern New York area.

Barrett provided introductions to our business as well as lunch and a site tour of the Watertown quarry and asphalt plants. The day even included a BLAST in the quarry! This has been a great event and we look forward to our next graduate in 2020.
