Carpentry Students Practice Skills at Tecumseh High School
CTC's Carpentry Program has a long history of contributing to the local community through various construction projects. This year is no different. The junior and senior Carpentry students have been constructing a new maintenance building for Tecumseh Local Schools. The school district plans to use the facility to house its maintenance equipment.
Under the guidance of experienced instructors, students are putting what they've learned in the classroom to work. In addition to basic construction skills, the project provides students with real-world scenarios to develop their communication, troubleshooting, and teamwork skills.
Carpentry instructor Mr. John Schmid shared, "Trusses are up, and we hope the weather cooperates so we can complete the roof quickly. We've made pretty good progress since the beginning of the school year, and we anticipate wrapping up our portion of the project by the end of this school year."
Junior students have been working on the construction project since the beginning of this school year and anticipate finishing by the end of the school year in May 2024.
In addition to the current project at Tecumseh, prior Carpentry Program students have constructed the fire barn, dog barn, and shelter house at the Clark County Fairgrounds.
