IEC Atlanta 2015 Apprentice of the Year, Places in Top 10 at National Competition
MatthewGillelandsmAtlanta, GA – November 4, 2015 - IEC Atlanta congratulates Matthew Gilleland of LeMay Electric on placing in the top ten at the 2015 IEC National Expo wire off competition.  Matthew is IEC Atlanta’s 2015 Apprentice of the Year, a position he acquired by making the grades and winning IEC Atlanta’s wire-off in April of 2015.   Because of his hard work, Matthew earned the opportunity to represent the IEC Atlanta chapter at the National Expo.  IEC chapters across the country send the best of the best apprentices to compete and hopefully bring home the title of National Apprentice of the Year.
The 2015 National Expo wire off competition is the mega showcase for upcoming journey persons to highlight their electrical skills and knowledge.  Contestants showed their skills and knowledge in the areas of curriculum, wiring projects based on motor control, pipe bending and troubleshooting.  Matthew gave an excellent presentation and represented those of us in the Atlanta chapter well.  
Mathew, along with other top apprentice competitors, were recognized on Saturday, October 24th at the President’s Gala.  Congratulations to Matthew Gilleland!
