Maplewood Career Center Students Assist in Village of Windham County Project
Maplewood Career Center Carpentry and Electricity students assisted with the installation of a community events sign in partnership with the Windham Exempted Village School District, the Village of Windham, the Village of Windham Board of Trustees and the Village of Windham Fire Department.
“This was the perfect scenario for all parties involved,” said Gregg Isler, Windham superintendent. “Not only were we able to install our community sign in a fiscally responsible manner, but we were also able to provide students with the opportunity to apply their carpentry and electric skills in a real-world project.”The carpentry students laid the foundation for the sign and the electricity students completed all of the electrical wiring for the project.
“All of the students at Maplewood are extremely professional. It’s like working with a hired contractor,” said Isler.
The sign is located in front of the fire station on State Route 303 and will be used to promote community-wide events.
“Any opportunity that allows us to give our students hands-on experience, while making a positive impact on our local community, is a win in our book,” said Maplewood Superintendent Randall Griffith. “We are grateful for all of those who were involved in making this project possible.”
