SUN Area Technical Institute’s Joe Weisser delivered students’ sitting benches to Shikellamy and Selinsgrove High Schools. SUN Tech students made the benches from scratch for all 5 sending High Schools: Lewisburg HS, Shikellamy HS, Midd-West HS, Selinsgrove HS and Mifflinburg HS.
SUN Tech’s Masonry Program made the concrete forms, Advanced Wood and Carpentry programs planed, ripped and crosscut the lumber, and Advanced Machining Program machined the hardware on the benches and engraved the inscriptions. The SUN Team approach created a project for all communities to enjoy which illustrates the value and practicality of career and technical education. Upon delivery many observers were impressed with the craftsmanship and the fact that the benches were created by using all four programs and not outsourcing finished products. SUN Tech is in the business of creating innovative student minds with emphasis on skilled craftsmanship, work ethic achievement, timely project deadlines, and multitasking to maintain a current and upcoming workforce for years to come.
