SHEBOYGAN — The North and South High School House Construction students held a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday on Sheboygan’s far south side.
The construction site is located in the new Stonebrook Crossing Subdivision located along South Business Drive. Project 2021 is the 24th home that will be built by students enrolled in Career & Technical Education classes from Sheboygan North and Sheboygan South high schools. Experience gained in this house construction class provides students with skills, experiences and connections to pursue a career in construction trades.
The program included a welcome from Jason Duff, Academic and Career Planning Coordinator for the Sheboygan Area School District. Superintendent Seth Harvatine also spoke at the program, emphasizing how important it is for schools to prepare students for the future by offering real-world, hands-on learning experiences like this one. Ed Hurlbutt from Oostburg Lumber and Bob Werner from Werner Homes were two of the many valued community partners in this project and also addressed the students and guests at the ceremony.
This is the sixth home built under the direction of instructor and project manager Ted Schermetzler.
