Congratulations to all Students of the Quarter.

Carpentry Builds New Storage Shed for SHS
When Springfield High School found themselves in desperate need of a new storage shed on their athletic field, they came to the River Valley Technical Center's Carpentry program and asked if the students would be interested in constructing one for them. Carpentry instructor, Erin Hunter, put them to the task of planning the materials and tools to bring to the site and organizing each student's roll once they arrive to maximize productivity. Once they had done the proper planning, the students headed out to the job site, constructed the walls and began putting the shed together. Their goal is to have the project complete by the end of November.
