Build trades class saved – Students will assist Habitat

August 14, 2013

    The building trades program at Adams Central High School, which has been dangling over the edge of existence for the past few months, has new life for the 2013-14 school year after partnering with the Habitat for Humanity (HFH) of Adams County to build a home on the south side of Berne.
    HFH President Ben Liechty met with the AC Board of Education Thursday to talk about the group known for building affordable homes for those who otherwise would not be able to afford a home. Liechty proposed the building trades class at AC work with HFH on the Berne home, providing both organizations a much needed boost.
    Liechty said HFH recently lost the contractor normally used on area homes, but fell into some luck when Ideal Homes provided a building site – complete with a concrete slab, driveway, sidewalk and patio already in place, as well as building plans – at a discounted price.
