Tuesday was a different kind of signing day than Jimmy Garroppolo fans might be used to.
May 4 is SkillsUSA National Signing Day. The day is a marker of celebration and recognition for high school seniors who have chosen to pursue a carer in the skilled trades.
A recent study from Klein Tools found that there is a growing workforce gap amongst skilled trade professions like electricians, plumbers, and contractors.
Jimmy Garoppolo and his dad Tony Garoppolo, a former electrician, celebrated the day by promoting their partnership with SkillsUSA, Klein Tools, and Home Depot, which aims to expose more kids to fulfilling careers in the trades.
