CMR Students Help Build Houses

Posted: Updated:

C.M. Russell High School students aren't just learning with books and homework, they are getting their education while helping out their community at the same time. Looks like a ordinary construction site right, But this house isn't being built by your typical construction workers. This is the High School House Class from CMR.

"Basically from start to finish we build a house, the kids do everything from the concrete work to the walls, sheet rock, roofing," explains teacher, Landon Stubbs.

Students spend most of their school year helping a local organization complete houses on time and on budget.

"The partner that we work with is neighbor works. so they supply our materials and we supply the labor," says Stubbs.

Thanks to the High School House Class, student Michael Lamere can get an early start on living his dream.

"Well I have been wanting to be a construction worker, like my Freshman year I just decided and this actually helps me to get a step closer to what I want to do," answers Lamere.

Proving that school can also be fun; Lamere is not afraid dirty for his favorite part of the job.

"I'm going to have to say mudding it's where you can get dirty but you can clean it off at the same time," says Lamere.

The work that Lamere and his classmates do is not only educational but a community service that will help give a family their first home.

"It usually go to a first time home buyer, low income family that apply through neighbor works,"explains Stubbs.
