Representatives from the Door County mainland high schools broke ground Wednesday morning on the 2017-2018 Home Building Project. Students from Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol, Gibraltar and Southern Door will spend three hours every morning during the school week working to complete the new house. Seth Wilson, the instructor for the program, believes this opportunity will help fill a void in the local trade job industry.
Sturgeon Bay senior Jaegar Brusky is looking towards a job in carpentry industry following graduation next spring and believes this project will be a valuable asset to his career growth.
Students participating in the Home Building Project will earn 12 credits from NWTC and four credits towards high school graduation. The full list of students participating in this program can be found online with this story.
