High school students helping to renovate Vermont town hall
WHEELOCK, Vt. (AP) — High school students are working with a Vermont town to help repair and rehabilitate the community’s historic town hall.
The Caledonian Record reports students in Lyndon Institute’s Construction Trades program were presented a list of repairs needed in Wheelock’s 1871 town hall and the students selected the tasks that they would complete.
Lyndon Institute Director of Career and Technical Education Jason Di Giulio says the work at the town hall allows students to practice their construction skills in a real-world context.
He says that one day four teams of students were cutting and putting up dry walling as well as trimming, and painting.
Wheelock Select Board member Ann Lawless says the community appreciates the work and they’re happy to provide the students the opportunity for real life work experience.
