A second life

Career tech instructors at EHOVE make sure their students have access to a lot of real-world work experiences to prepare them for a career after high school.  In just one of many examples, instructors decided to refurbish a school trailer that was in need of an overhaul.

Electrical Tech students replaced the wiring and added new lights, Industrial Tech students added new fenders and leaf spring hangers, Construction Tech students built new decking and Collision & Refinishing students made gate repairs and gave it a fresh paint job.

“This trailer had seen better days and now is ready to go for the next 20 years,” said Electrical Tech instructor Chuck Oeder.   “A comparable replacement trailer would cost in excess of $4000.”
