Building Trades II
Students have been building benches that when put together and folded turn into a picnic table. The benches will be donated to Christian Neighbors in Otsego where they will be auctioned off at their annual auction that raises funds to support their food pantry.
The Allegan Tech Center Auto Program was recently featured in the Allegan News and Gazette. The article explained what goes on in the program and how they help the less fortunate families in the community with expensive car repairs. It also talked about how the program helps Sylvia’s Place, a domestic violence shelter. The students in the program do car repairs for these women and Sylvia’s place pays for the parts to help them get back on their feet. While doing these community services, the students are getting real life experience which prepares them for great paying jobs in the auto industry.
