Irving-based HOLT CAT is the winner of the Dallas Regional Chamber 2014 Blueprint Award.
The Blueprint Awards celebrate companies that have made a positive impact on the economy through job growth, location and expansion activities and companies and organizations that contribute to the vitality of the Dallas region.
To help close the skills gap and rekindle interest in vocational careers, HOLT CAT launched a unique partnership with Dubiski Career High School in Grand Prairie.
This first-of-its-kind paid internship and mentoring program boosted opportunities for youth interested in a career in the skilled trades by giving them access to industry-leading technical training and real-life on-the-job experience.
To date, more than 30 student interns have completed or currently participate in the program.
