One of the many benefits that vocational school students bring to their local communities is their hands-on training.
Because students learn real-world skills at UCT, they can use those abilities to support the community and show a return on taxpayers dollars.
Nolan LeRoy, technical programs supervisor, told Cape News that the student labor allowed the school to do the renovations for only the cost of materials. Since the League didn’t have the money to complete the work, UCT students made the whole project possible.
In addition to the baseball field project, students from the school are also past the school has also been tapped to build a ticket booth at the Sandwich Marina and to do work on the Sandwich Council on Aging building.
Besides their work for the community, UCT students work hard to upkeep the campus buildings and grounds, allowing the school to invest funding in other programs, rather than routine maintenance.
Construction students helped construct and have made improvements to the Allied Health Building, Engineering & HVAC buildings, the football press box, and the gazebo. And the horticulture students work on landscaping construction and plantings, as well as maintaining the athletic fields.
Not only do our students get real-world experience, but their hands-on education benefits the surrounding communities and the entire campus with savings while they learn. Your tax dollars at work translates into a job well done!
