Busy Year For NFDL Building Trades Program

It’s going to be a busy year for students in the Horace Mann High School’s Building Trades program. Instructor Mike McDowell says they will be participating in the building of two homes. Ground was broken this past week for a home that will be built on Michigan Avenue. He says they will be building another in the fall. He says the 10 students in the program have done some work for the Housing Authority, which involved building outside shelters. He says that gave them some experience in masonry and basic building principles.
