Washburn Tech students participating in The Villages project

The Villages project

Students in cabinet and millwork technology designed, built and installed cabinets for a group home at The Villages, which provides an emotionally supportive home for children and youth in need. The project also included the tasks of replacing concrete, constructing a shelter house and building a road and parking area. It’s a hands-on way to give others a hand.

Building Connections

Those students are terrific, and we can’t say enough about the work they do. We’ve enjoyed having them out here, and they’ve done great work for us.

For a Good Cause

You have to take pride in your work because you're doing it for somebody else. It's nice to have the hands-on experience. Our teacher (Johnny Lemon) treats our class like we're working for a company.
