Students build counter for school

From press reports

The Louisville High School cafeteria recently received a new front counter. It was constructed by the Winston Louisville Career and Technology Center’s Construction class which is instructed by Mr. Bryan Christopher. Mr. Christopher is a first year instructor at the Winston Louisville Career and Technology Center. The WLCTC students were able to put their skills to work by also constructing shooting houses for hunting and dog houses.

The Construction program provides students with an introduction to carpentry, masonry (brick and block laying), plumbing, cabinet- making, and electrical fundamentals. Students are taught general building techniques, knowledge of building materials, and instruction on the use of hand and power tools. After successfully completing the program, students will be registered with the National Construction Education and Research Foundation. They can continue to train through apprenticeship programs at several levels. Some of these programs are general contractors, estimators, journeyman, foreman, and project manager.

The students’ hard work and dedication is greatly appreciated by the faculty and staff of Louisville High School. If you are a student who enjoys working with your hands and receives satisfaction in seeing a finished product then look for upcoming spring registration at the Winston Louisville Career and Technology Center.
