A Chair Fit for a Tradesman!

While students began OSHA training, some Plumbing Year II students decided to put their spare time and spare wood to good use. They built Plumbing Inscutor, Michael Whalen, a sturdy and functional throne. Pictured are the handymen and their project.

Repairs and Restoration Lead to Remembrance

In an effort to beautify the campus, some Construction Year II students noticed that a gazebo was in need of serious repair. While they were working, they discovered a few bricks along the walkway that had names of importance engraved on them, revealing some of the history of New Horizons.

Project-based learning is an exciting part of learning at the Center for Apprenticeship and Adult Training. Along with the Mission BBQ project, a second-year welding student, Josh Croteau fabricated and welded with the help of his instructors, an aluminum dog box. The dog box is used for the transportation of dogs in truck beds. The project took over forty (40) hours to complete and all welding supplies and metal were donated by the project owner.
Collaboration among all campuses and instructors is strong with the Center for Apprenticeship and Adult Training (CFAAT). Both the Career and Technical Education Center (CTE) and CFAAT work together to ensure each program is operating at maximum efficiency. Joshawa Martel, welding instructor for CFAAT, and Pierette Swan, welding instructor for CTE are pictured planning together for the upcoming school year. Success for students is the focus!
