Students Wire Newton Church Picnic Shelter

Students in Catawba Valley Community College's electrical wiring class recently wired East First Street Baptist Church's (Newton, N.C.) new picnic shelter and kitchen. Under the direction of faculty Tom Smith, the students spent four class meetings installing the wiring. Smith gives students as much field experience as possible so they can show prospective employers they possess real-life job skills.
