From Youngest Journeyman to Plumbing Executive
Jared Taylor started in the Plumbing Apprenticeship program at Davis Applied Technology College with a junior and senior in high school. He has become the youngest journeyman in the state.
When asked about his educational experience, Jared said, “It was exciting and fun to work with the instructor and to do hands-on projects that helped me perform at a higher level on the job.” Jared is now the Vice President of Robert Speirs Plumbing, a business that his grandfather started in 1961. “We have 42 plumbers working for us,” said Jared. “We hire DATC students because they are fully trained, know how to do the work we need, and have high standards for quality.”
