Friday, April 23 was a beautiful day for a visit from Senator Helming at our Wayne Technical and Career Center in Williamson! She came out and spent some time touring the Carpentry program's Habitat for Humanity house. Students in the program have been building the house in collaboration with the Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County. Upon completion, the house will be moved to its permanent location in Newark where the final phase of construction will take place.
Many projects the students participate in require involvement from multiple programs to see it through to completion. For the Habitat for Humanity house, Carpentry has worked in sync with Electrical Trades to be able to offer hands-on experience for the students, as well as equip the house with what it needs to be completed in a timely manner once it is moved from the WTCC campus. Senator Helming also visited with the Electrical Trades program for a tour of the newly remodeled classroom and booths where students are honing their skills in preparation for their participation on the Habitat House.
We can't thank Senator Helming enough for her support and time visiting with us!
