Real work experience is what makes career and technical programs come to life for students all across the nation. Here in Clay County, our students not only get real work projects, but they get to give back to their community in ways that bring a bright spot to others.
Mr. Brian Holcomb, carpentry teacher at CCHS, is always looking for ways to give students practical experience while helping others. Just recently, students were able to build a picnic table and present it to the residents of Laurel Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Big Otter, WV. O. Gene King, the longest serving local board of education member in WV, requested that a table be made for the courtyard at the facility. CCHS students went to work designing and purchasing the necessary materials to make it happen. The table was made with treated lumber, to give an extended life so that the residents can enjoy it for years to come.
CCHS Panthers are proud to be a small part of the Laurel Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Plans are already being developed for future projects at the center. Thank you CCHS Panthers!
