Brother George Throckmorton, LU3 member since 1/2013 has been hired as the new Paper Hanger Apprenticeship Instructor. Congratulations!
“My name is George Throckmorton, I’ve been proud local 3 member since January 2013. I started my journey with Romano’s and Monticelli splitting my time between commercial painting and wallcovering. When I started with Jerry Thompson and sons I became a dedicated paperhanger. I learned every aspect of the wallcovering trade from rolled goods to forbo, under the supervision of Mike Wooldridge and Darin Williams. I am excited to have the opportunity now to bestow the wisdom and skill set I’ve accrued on the next generation of apprentices rising through the ranks. I hope to create a program here that will give all the skills and confidence needed to become an outstanding, professional, union paperhanger.”
