Kohler Supports Student Plumbers
August 6, 2004
Kohler Co. and its subsidiary brand Sterling donated suites of bathroom products for the 40th annual SkillsUSA Championship. The contest was organized and co-sponsored by the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association. More than 4,000 high school and post-secondary college and technical students participated in hands-on skills and leadership competitions in Kansas City, Mo., in June. Kohler's contributions included 35 sets of pedestal lavatories, shower and lavatory faucets and toilets from its Devonshire™ suite, while Sterling donated its Ensemble™ 48-inch shower enclosures made of Vikrell™ material. These products will now be used over the next five years of competition by student plumbers. The SkillsUSA Championships are for high school and college-level students who are members of SkillsUSA-VICA.
