“Hedrick Brothers Construction currently participates in the two Career Fairs (fall & spring) for the M.E. Rinker Sr., School of Construction Management and has for many years. We recognize the tremendous value that the graduates from The School provide to our company and the fees we pay to attend these career fairs are insignificant in this regard.” – Dale Hedrick, President of Hedrick Brothers Construction
