Denver, CO – February 18, 2022 – Quanta Services, Inc., a leading specialized infrastructure solutions provider to the utility, renewable energy communications and energy industries, and the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA), the world’s largest youth rodeo association, announced a new multi-level partnership agreement intended to elevate members of the NHSRA by bolstering their experience in rodeo into career opportunities for working in the skilled trades, with a focus on electrical power.
The five-year agreement with Quanta supports the NHSRA’s mission to provide educational opportunities to its members by offering yearly scholarships to a Quanta-owned vocational technical college with a focus on careers in the electric power delivery industry. Quanta recognizes the values, work ethic and applicable skill sets that individuals in the western industry possess and believe the partnership will benefit not only members of the NHSRA, but the western industry as a whole.
“The need for workers in the skilled trades is growing every day and I couldn’t think of a better partner to introduce kids to opportunities in this type of work than the NHSRA,” said Redgie Probst, chief operating officer of Quanta Services. “Ranch, farm and rodeo kids are raised with the passion, grit and dedication to the hard work that it takes to be successful in the trades. It is our privilege to offer scholarships that will give them the necessary skills to succeed in our industry.”
Chanel Haworth, NHSRA vice president of marketing commented, “The NHSRA is continuously seeking ways to give back to our members and align with our partners. When Quanta approached us with the determination to invest in the futures, experiences and opportunities given to NHSRA members, Quanta’s commitment to the NHSRA and the whole western industry was clear. We are excited to welcome Quanta to the NHSRA and look forward to growing together, particularly through fostering programs unseen in the association thus far.”
