Students from the Carpentry and Electricity classes at the Breathitt ATC are building a club room that will be used by the SkillsUSA, HOSA, and FBLA clubs to host meetings and other events. What was once a welding shop-turned-storage room is being transformed into a bright, cheerful space complete with a stage in front for the club officers to use during gatherings. To round out the venue, logos for all three clubs (SkillsUSA, HOSA, and FBLA) will adorn the walls and a new American flag will be proudly displayed.
Instructors Gene Booth and Kelly Clibern have been very resourceful during the project. The room is being painted with recycled, light gray paint. Additionally, a large portion of the lumber used to build the stage is left over from previous projects.
The room is desperately needed, as all three of the Tech Center’s student organizations have enrollments that far exceed the meeting space currently available. Work on the room is expected to be completed by the end of January.
