GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Both Brianna Lampe and Brianna Conway are first-year apprentices through the Local 174 Plumbers & Pipefitters. Nicknamed “Bri 1” by her colleagues, Lampe joined Egan Co. in September of 2020, while Conway—or “Bri 2”—was hired just two months later.

… Both Lampe and Conway had a couple of years of work experience in non-union welding roles before their apprenticeships, but different training paths up to that point. “I was always a hands-on, artsy person,” says Lampe. Her dad, a professor at Grand Rapids Community College, encouraged her to enroll there, where she earned her Welding Technology Associates Degree.
