National Apprenticeship Week – People First Spotlight Jackson Grant

Nov 17, 2022

National Apprenticeship Week is celebrated from November 14-20! Apprenticeships have proven to be a tremendous way for students to study highly skilled trades while earning great pay and learning from knowledgeable industry veterans. We are thankful for Ruan’s apprentices and look forward to all that they’ll do in their careers.

Meet Jackson Grant, an IT apprentice, who has been with Ruan since November 2021. Jackson was enrolled in a Cyber Security program at Central Campus in Des Moines, IA, and after graduating, he applied for the Ruan apprenticeship to start his career in technology. Jackson currently attends Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) studying liberal arts.
