For the last couple of weeks SkillsUSA members have been selling raffle tickets to raise money for SkillsUSA National competition in Louisville, KY this June. WCC is very proud to be sending 15 students to national competition. On Wednesday, May 25th, Channel 12 televised the drawing live. Shawneen Hefton was the winner of a custom built PC built by the WCC Computer Maintenance class. Winner of the Pelican Pro Gear 35Qt. Cooler, donated by Bank of Crocker, Ransdall Farms and Wal-Mart, was Pat Shoemaker. The Grand Prize, a 2016 Honda TRX 420 Rancher 4-Wheeler, was won by Matt McCray. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone that purchased a ticket.
Waynesville Career Center students have put something special into the single-story, all-brick house that’s for sale at 102 Highland Woods in Waynesville: Tiger Pride.
“Whoever purchases this home gets far more than brick and mortar, they get students’ pride of workmanship,” says Clinton Jarrett, construction technology instructor. “Students have to keep doing something until they get it right and that’s what sets this house apart from all of the others.”
WCC students in the construction technology, HVAC and masonry programs spent two years constructing the home and are quick to point out how well built it is, how they took their time and how an instructor ensured that everything was done correctly.
“Now, it’s time to sell this house so our WCC students can focus on the new house they are building,” says Dr. Chris Berger, assistant superintendent of operational services.
The house’s highlights include an open concept kitchen and living room with the fireplace’s stonework reaching to the top of the vaulted ceiling. The cherry-stained kitchen bar island showcases masonry work below as well. Stainless steel appliances finish off the room’s upscale look.
