With a Program Short on Funds, Students Combine Skills to Help

Students from Central Technology Center in Drumright, Okla., raised $1,500 for Cleveland Public Schools, a feeder system in need of funding. Welding/fabrication students worked with the diesel technology class to build outdoor furniture and custom signs. The items were sold in conjunction with a car show and auction held by the Octane Outlaws of Cleveland.

The students are bronze medal winners in SkillsUSA’s college/postsecondary Community Action competition.

Students David Casey, welding, and Austin Davidson, diesel, put finishing touches on a picnic table (inset) sold during a car show.
