The Career & Technical Education Department of KPBSD would like to say thank you to the following people for helping our After School Construction Academy program:
Paul Dale from Snug Harbor;
Mike Hall from Carlisle;
and, Bob Ross from Spenard Builders Supply.
Our construction academies are designed to prepare students for employment through hands-on construction experience. The current academy involves two schools. Bill Carlson (Welding Instructor), Ed Parson (ASRC Welding Instructor ) and Sohi students welded the foundation for the school portable. Once the foundation was completed it was to be moved to Skyview for framing and completion by Doug Gordon (Carpentry Instructor) and his students. We knew this was going to be a costly challenge to move the metal frames from one school to the next but thanks to our local businesses it was just the opposite.
Snug Harbor, Carlisle, and Spenard Builders Supply not only donated their equipment but also their employee's time to move the two 12-by-40 metal frames from Soldotna High School to Skyview High School. Carlisle provided the flat bed truck. Spenard Builders Supply & Snug Harbor provided the boom trucks. Once completed the classroom portable will be used at one of our schools within the district.
We really appreciate Snug Harbor, Carlisle, and Spenard Builders Supply's contribution to make our After School Construction Academies successful in preparing students for Alaska's workforce.
