8th Light

8th Light

WHY THAT IMAGE?

This picture was taken at our recent apprentice welcome week. We brought together the new apprentices from all of our offices for a week in Chicago where they got to know each other, learned about the past, present and future of 8th Light, and shared their energy and enthusiasm with the rest of the company. And experienced deep dish pizza, some for the first time.
