Southwestern Michigan College Annual “Sawdust Days” Event

Southwestern Michigan College hosts an annual “Sawdust Days” seminar for high school students who are starting to think about their career path. For the past four years, Big C Lumber President & CEO Bill Wallace has opened the event by appealing to these students to consider a career in the building trade industry. Big C Lumber offers many opportunities including sales, manufacturing, delivery drivers, estimating and design, and administrative.

Pictured are (from left) Missy Swink and Brittney Almaguer, both estimators, and General Manager Dallas Austin at the 2022 event on October 7.  All three are from our Structural Building Components Facility where we design and manufacture roof trusses, floor trusses, and wall panels. Both Wallace and Austin pointed out to the students that housing demand is high, and the opportunities are nearly endless, within the industry and within Big C Lumber.
