Sem Ridge Students Build Seventh Home For Habitat For Humanity

The new home stands ready to be moved.

On Thursday, Nov. 29, the Seminole Ridge High School Construction Academy moved its seventh Habitat for Humanity house.

The program has built a home every year for the past seven years. The program loaded the home up on Nov. 29 and the home was assembled on the site on Nov. 30.

The construction program prepares students for college and employment in the building construction industry. The program provides necessary skills to enter homebuilding, general contracting and related industries.

This SRHS academy program focuses on broad transferable skills, stresses the understanding of all aspects of the building construction industry, and demonstrates essential elements of the industry such as: architecture, engineering, planning, management, finance, technical and production skills.

Incorporated in the curriculum are the underlying principles of technology, labor issues, community issues, health, safety and environmental issues. Training occurs in the classroom, lab and at actual job sites.

This is a Choice Program at Seminole Ridge High School, and the deadline to apply is Jan. 25. For more information, contact teacher Rick Terkovich at
