Center ISD Construction Students Make Repairs to Shelby County Museum

March 6, 2023 - The Center ISD Building Trades program partnered with the Shelby County Museum over the past couple of weeks to give students hands on construction experience and give the museum some much needed repairs. The students replaced rotten wood around the front porch collumns, a rotten window stool, and repaired a hand rail. They also power washed the rails on the porch. After all the repairs, the students primed and then painted new wood.

Building Trades program teacher is Wayne Holt. The program includes Construction II and Construction Practically. The partnership provided an opportunity for the students to practice the skills being learned in construction. The museum provided the materials and the students provided the labor.
