TOLSIA HIGH CARPENTRY STUDENTS LENDING A HELPING HAND
Tolsia High School Carpentry Students led by Instructor Eric Crum have been working on a project recently involving the “Tiny Homes” Initiative. The project is in conjunction with the Project Lead the Way Program at Wayne High School. The groups are working together to design and build homes for individuals at Stepping Stones Group home in Wayne County. These homes are for those individuals that are transitioning out of the Stepping Stones Program due to their age. However, they are still in need of support during the transition period.
The Tolsia High Carpentry Program has partnered with the other groups to complete the construction of the homes. These homes were designed by the Project Lead the Way Program at Wayne High. Mr. Eric Crum, Tolsia Carpentry Instructor said, “This is a great experience for our students to personally use a lot of the things we learn in our classes. It is a wonderful cause and the project is a great way for them to give back to the community and those in need. I want to thank our Representatives and the Wayne County School system for making this possible. We at Tolsia High continue to work to prepare our students to be productive citizens when leaving our school.”
