2016 Waynesville JROTC members included:
Cailey Lochert, a Waynesville Career Center graphic design student, created the winning images to represent Missouri SkillsUSA students. Lochert, who is in her second year in the graphic design program at the WCC, is from Iberia. She submitted her designs, along with students from graphic design programs all across the State, and will be recognized at the Skills USA State competition in Linn, Mo., in February.
Each Missouri SkillsUSA member will be wearing her design on a T-Shirt and trade pins with her design at the national competition, which means that her design will end up in the hands of Skills members from all across the United States.
Waynesville Career Center students have put something special into the single-story, all-brick house that’s for sale at 102 Highland Woods in Waynesville: Tiger Pride.
“Whoever purchases this home gets far more than brick and mortar, they get students’ pride of workmanship,” says Clinton Jarrett, construction technology instructor. “Students have to keep doing something until they get it right and that’s what sets this house apart from all of the others.”
WCC students in the construction technology, HVAC and masonry programs spent two years constructing the home and are quick to point out how well built it is, how they took their time and how an instructor ensured that everything was done correctly.
“Now, it’s time to sell this house so our WCC students can focus on the new house they are building,” says Dr. Chris Berger, assistant superintendent of operational services.
The house’s highlights include an open concept kitchen and living room with the fireplace’s stonework reaching to the top of the vaulted ceiling. The cherry-stained kitchen bar island showcases masonry work below as well. Stainless steel appliances finish off the room’s upscale look.
The Board reserves the right to accept or reject any or all bids and to waive any informalities in the bid process.
