As part of a joint effort with Habitat for Humanity of Medina County, students in the Construction Trades program are building the exterior walls of a home that Habitat will soon construct in Brunswick and provide to a family in need.
“We like to help the community, that’s the fun part,” Mason said. “The trades in general are really hurting for employees. These kids coming out of this program know more than many people in the trades already. They know how to use all the tools; we cover every aspect of construction in here, so they have a general idea of everything. They really have a great skill set and are going to be very employable when they get out of here.”
This is not the first time MCCC construction students have assisted either Habitat or other local community organizations. Other community projects students have done in the past include building a handicapped-accessible deck for a local Make-A-Wish recipient, rebuilding the firehouse museum in Medina and building out a storage room at the Medina AmVets post to convert to a meeting room.
