Program Instructors

Rick Brown

Rick Brown

Rick has spent the last 13 years as an instructor at the college; the first 11 as the Bricklaying instructor and the last 2 as a Construction Technology instructor. Before that, he spent 23 years in the construction industry, mostly in the masonry business. Rick says, “The exciting thing about construction is being able to construct things with your own two hands and watching people get really excited about what you have built. You can get involved in the Construction Technology program and learn things like carpentry, cabinetmaking, bricklaying, electrical, and most things that pertain to the construction industry. I would love to have the opportunity to discuss the Construction Technology program with you. Please phone or just stop by.”
