High School Students Renovate Men's Locker Room.
In Huntington, West Virginia, the Marshall University men's basketball locker room recently underwent renovations. But what's more: this project--undertaken as a collaborative effort among electrical, carpentry and building technology programs at Cabell County Career Technology Center (CTC) --offered students a unique opportunity to gain real-world experience.
"Beyond the important lessons learned on such a high-profile job, students will forever be able to look at the Cam Henderson Center as something they helped create," said Charles Vaughn, electrical instructor.
"Not many [high school students] get to do this, especially us ninth-graders," said D.J. Walker, a student in the building technology program at Cabell County Career Technology Center. "To get to show real skill, I've never done anything this big."
